I played with my very favorite paint - Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Paint! Something about that luscious paint, it kicks me into creative mode even when my mojo has completely gone on hiatus. I got out painterly pink, dash of red and blank canvas, and just played around and mixed them and dabbed them onto heavy cardstock until I got something I liked for a background!
Since it pained me to completely cover up the gorgeous paint, I opted for a big vellum flower on this card. I embossed the Hero Arts Stencil Flower, and filled the center with seed beads. I love attaching the flower with just a dot of Glossy Accents - it makes the edges curl up slightly, giving the card some dimension.
I was inspired by my grandma to choose PAINT as my challenge - she is an amazing artist, and also a breast cancer survivor.
I do hope you'll play along with me! You have until November 7 to get your card uploaded on Splitcoast - oh, did I mention - there are PRIZES!! All of the details, including the address to send you card off to MD Anderson, are included in my challenge thread.
Happy stamping, and happy painting!
