I thought long and hard about the type of project I would do and I decided to create a card using one of my most favorite techniques...REVERSE PAINTING. It's an ancient technique that dates back farther than you can imagine, and if you've never tried this technique, it is quite simple-yet brings fabulous results. I've taught the technique in a few classes here and there and everyone who tries it can't believe how simple it really is.
All you need to achieve beautiful images every time are: a fine hair paint brush, acrylic paint, Staz-On ink, Acetate, and of course, your favorite stamp(s)! In this case, I used a few sets from the new collection: Distressed Leaves Precut Set, Sympathy Sentiments Precut Set and Dutch Iris Oval Precut Set.
My lavender cardstock paper is a treasure as it's paper I HOARD and hardly ever use. It's by HANKO Designs and it is the most lucious Tsumugi Silk embossed paper in the world! I also used Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals. The white panel was embossed using the Cuttlebug embossing folder called "Birds and Swirls".
