The first is a card for a friend who is celebrating her golden birthday today and having a party tonight. I wanted to include some gold on the card, so I decided to go with gold paint. I pulled out my Adirondack acrylic paint dabber. While I was trying to get the paint to flow, the top popped off so I ended up with a big pile of paint on my scratch paper. (How are you supposed to get the paint to flow out of those things?? I press the tip on paper over and over and nothing comes out, so then I squeeze the bottle and the top pops off! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!) Since I had a pile of paint and no brush (I was upstairs in my dining room so I could hang out with my kids) I decided to spread it with my finger. The paint got kind of blobby (totally not a word, but I'm using it anyway) around the edges of the paper, but I do like how it turned out on the dry embossed paper on the bottom. I stamped some swirls and flowers on the center piece with ink and then rubbed the paint dabber tip in the spilled paint to "ink up" the sentiment stamp. A couple of stickers popped up with foam adhesive and the card was done!
I used this week's Card Pattern for this card. Sadly, this is the last one as the site owner has decided to stop. :( I will miss those sketches!
