I like to make cards that have interesting backgrounds. Here are two cards that I made recently using Paint and Archival Ink reinkers.
First the card made with Adirondack Paint Dabbers
I placed Sunset Orange and Sunshine Yellow paint onto my craft mat and spritzed with water. I dragged my cardstock through the paint mixture. I then spritzed the card with more water allowing the paint colors to mix. I dried the paint and then repeated the steps till I was happy with the look. The paint “glows” on the background and looks really rich and saturated with color.
I stamped using Dylusions Love Struck Lucy stamps and Black Archival Ink on the card. I used a Black Pitt Pen to connect the hearts and circles . . . .and then I used Glossy Accents to highlight the stamped images.
Here is another view. The paint looks washed out in this view but I wanted to show a close up of the texture.
The randomness of what you get makes this card fun to make and would make a perfect masculine card
The card front was popped up on top of a coordinations cardstock that had been embossed using an embossing folder and then sanded to reveal the kraft core.
