I was playing some more with my Lumiere acrylic paints a few days ago. I swiped on too much Pearl Magenta for what I wanted to do but thought maybe I could punch out shapes later, so left it on my table. I really wanted to make a card for this week's ODBDSLC to use Valentine colors or hearts. I bought their "Hearts" stamp awhile back & hadn't yet inked it. The light went on--emboss the hearts on the painted paper! I used Zing Chocolate ep & then cut it out with a Spellbinders oval. There was enough painted area on the discarded piece that I re-stamped the roses, cut them out & mounted them with foam tape. I used COPICs to add a little color to the roses & the wreath. The brown printed paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I also hadn't yet used the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares, but I needed a rectangle. I remembered seeing someone show that you can cut a die in half, spread it apart to the size you need & cover the center area. My brown ribbon was too narrow, so I used 2 strips & then added the piece of brown lace--worked great! The hearts & the brown mat are mounted with foam tape. One more Valentine ready to send to a card-making friend--yah!
It's Super Bowl Sunday in the US & I have a deal for you, Maria (matcat2002 in Maryland). If the Niners win I owe you a card (& a little stamping goodie) & if the Ravens win you owe me--what do you say?! GO NINERS!!
