Jenny is the host this month, and she has such a fun challenge using Acrylic Paint!
This card I made in February came to mind immediately. I couldn't wait to pull out the Brutus Monroe paper that a very sweet friend sent to me!
Here is how it all began: I used the Flowers in Bloom stamp from MFT and stamped it onto a sheet of that gorgeous patterned paper - I might mention a bit of strategy was used to optimize where the pattern would fall on the stamp.
Then, I used some white Martha Stewart acrylic paint, also mixing up a few colors by tinting the white with water color paints. It was just a matter of allowing it to dry overnight, re-stamping with Versafine ink, die-cutting and mounting it on my card base, and adding a fussy-cut sentiment from the same set.
You have to know I wasn't wasting one scrap of that gorgeous paper … here is my 'leftover' card... colored pencil over PTI Spring Moss paper.
Thanks, Jenny … and the entire CAS Mix Up team, for always making me reach, and try new things!
Happiest 4th Birthday!!!
Beautiful work, Michele - I love the woodgrain coming through on your first card, and what a great idea to use the "negative" paper to make your 2nd card - well done!
What a clever idea to stamp on the patterned paper paint it and then cut it out. The flowers end up looking really cool. Love the second card too. You are so inventive - I'm jealous! xx
Now that is so clever, so creative and so very effective. A clever use of the acrylic paint and the pretty paper. A unique and stunning card Michele x. Always great to get the two cards from the one technique x.
Oh. My. Gosh!!!! Both of these cards are absolutely GORGEOUS Michele!! What a cool and clever idea to paint on the PP! You are always thinking outside the box and I just love the way your mind thinks! Lovely, lovely cards my friend!! :0)
Michele these are STUNNING. Awe. No Words.
Holy moley, girl. This looks like a master painter did it. So now, I guess you're a master painter. Such impressive looks on both cards. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.
Gorgeous card designs and love the stamped image on the patterned paper.
Ok...there is some SERIOUS creativity and some SERIOUS prettiness happening here!
Love that first card the very best!! Stamping on that paper is glorious! I had been hoping the wooden fence background was a stamp though...just lovely!
Oh my word!! Your cards are FANTASTIC!!! I LOVE your stamping on the pattern paper!! Just WOW!!
Oh but my you are an inspiration my friend! Love all the versions and your choice of DP was perfect!
Wow! What great ways to showcase these flowers, Michele! I never think to stamp on patterned paper, but I need to change that!
Your acrylic flowers on the patterned paper are gorgeous, Michele. I love how this turned out. Amazing design. That paper is just perfect to combine with your flowers. Great work! And I love the CAS version. Those flowers really pop of the all white background. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
Gosh, you used that oh so pretty pp to perfection, Michele ... these are both so lovely ... your colouring on each one is fabulous! I'm rather taken by the softness of your pencil colouring ... it's just dreamy! Hugs, Anita :)
Just lovely! I can see that old barn with the flowers blooming beside it....thanks for sharing these beautiful designs.
These are so unique and cool, Michele. Fabulous cards!
I need to mentally file this idea away as it’s not only beautiful but brilliant.
so gorgeous...love it mf.
have a wonderful wknd
I love the card before you die cut the flowers from it, Michele, but then I saw what you did the the leftover and I'm in awe. The acrylic flowers are lovely but oh those pencil colored ones. So fabulous!!!
Such a unique and creative way of using the gorgeous patterned paper, Michele! I love the way the pattern slightly shows through the flowers. I would love to try using white acrylic paint with my patterned paper.
The color penciled flowers are so pretty! Beautiful mix of the colors. Good for you to make two cards out of one piece of pp!
Thank you so much for celebrating the CMU birthday with us!
Clunk! That's the sound of my jaw hitting the table ~ This is such a GORGEOUS set of cards, Michele! You had such a great idea to stamp these beautiful blooms onto that lovely woodgrain floral pattern...WOW! I love all the texture from the acrylic paints, too...Genius and stunning, my friend!
Oh I love this! You used the paper to its fullest potential and I LOVE the results! Maybe this friend should send you another pad! ;)
OMG...Michele...Gorgeous acrylic painted and die cut flowers on your white cardstock. When I saw your 1st card I thought...oh no, not a CAS design and then scrolled down and there was your beautiful creative CAS card:-) Love your DSP and both of your finished cards. So glad you were able to make a 2nd card out of your DSP:-) TFS my friend. Hugs..Nancy
OMG!!! What can I say ... I LOVE what you did with the acrylic!! What a stunning card and the 'save' is equally beautiful... Thanks so much for sharing at CAS mix Up!
Great cards, and how precious to be able to use every bit of paper! These are certainly sweet blooms
WOW! Great job, Michele! I love these!
That paper is gorgeous for sure....I don’t know anyone who could make it look even more fabulous.....except you! Absolutely beautiful work!
Gorgeous, gorgeous cards! Those flowers are so lovely!
What a spectacular result! Thanks for sharing your process. I love both your cards:) Thanks so much for sharing at CAS mix Up!
That paper is indeed divine! Two gorgeous makes.
WOW! Your cards look amazing. I love how you've used the patterned paper to create those pretty painted flowers. Thank you for playing along with the CAS Mix Up challenge xx
