I thought I would do things a little different around here today.
Yes, there will be a card. But let’s first talk challenge.
I want to challenge each and every one of you to grab a bottle of paint and somehow use it on a card or another paper crafting project.
It always excites me when I post something and see so many of you want to play. Yes, guys, I really am a geek like that. 😉 So yesterday, I was pretty much over the moon when many of you commented on my post on the Paper Crafts blog about Faux Stitching with Paint, saying that you were going to try it.
I thought I would sweeten the deal to get you to do it and throw out this paint using challenge to you. You have until midnight E.S.T. on June 2nd to post a project using paint on it in some way. Share a link here so I can check it out and add your name to my list.
You can enter as many projects as you want. I’ll write your name down once for every project you make with paint. So, yeah, the more projects you make, the more chances you have to win.
After the deadline passes, I will pick someone at random to receive a packet of goodies.
And, remember, you just have to use paint. If faux stitching with paint is not your thing, I challenge you to use paint in some other way. Consider painting letter stickers, swishing paint on the edges of your project, stamping with paint or even painting an entire piece of cardstock.
You can also try out this cool masking technique I used on today’s card.
Hee hee, meet today’s card. 😉
And here’s how I did.
1. I started with a sheet of letter stickers and a piece of cardstock. (You’ll notice I am using different letters for show here.) I applied them to the piece of cardstock.
2. I brushed paint liberally all over the cardstock, including over the letter stickers.
3. I removed the letter stickers so the white part was exposed. Pretty cool result.
Ok, so that is all for now.
Go play! Have some fun. Get painty fingers! 🙂
I can’t wait to see what you all come up with.
I’ll be back tomorrow.

Very cool! I don’t have any way to post a card online right now, but I do sometimes use acrylic paint to make backgrounds.
Your card is so cute. 🙂

Teri, I was so intrigued by the idea of using paint with my pattern tracing wheel that I created three different cards using this technique. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!!
Thanks so much for the opportunity to pull out “thee ol’ paints” from college! I had lots of fun painting on tissue paper to make one of those poofy flowers.
Just sticking my toes into this, great fun!!
Hope this works; I’m new to this
