Artists are like Roses card by Debs

Hi All

Springtime makes me think of warmer days and flowers and with that thought here is my latest project

I started off with a piece of kraft glassine, Dylusions paints in Postbox red, Lemon Zest, and Squeezed Orange and a brayer

I put a dob (technical term) of postbox red and adding this to the  paper with the brayer

I covered the whole piece with red using the brayer

Then added on the orange

and then the yellow
The nice thing about Dylusions other than their consistency is the fact that they are transparent paint and so will always pick up the colour underneath and using this technique gives a lovely effect

Once the paint was dry I then used some Fresh Lime and one of the new flourishes from The Flourish Ornate plate and stamped over the background in a couple of places

Then added some of the new flowers from the Open Floral Background in postbox red using a piece of foam to ink up the stamp

And again with some of the Lemon Zest and some of the other new stamps from both the Solid Floral Background and the Open Floral Background 

Next step was to take a piece of A4 White card and cut at an angle across the card and score in three equal pieces

Cut the painted Kraft Glassine to fit each panel 

I painted another piece of Glassine with the Postbox Red and then stamped the small rose from the 
Botanical Plate 3 and then cut them out 

And added them to the card along with the sentiment also from the same plate.

This challenge has obviously sparked those creative juices as we have loads of lovely entries already so do keep them coming and don't forget the Facebook page as well.

Happy crafting Debs

What a bright and happy card Debs. I love the colors (of course!) and they layers of painting have just made it so INTRICATELY INTRIGUING. Your roses are just beautiful too. This is one of those times when I like it almost equally - with and without the roses. Both are STUNNING. Xj.

Thank you Joi, it's a very easy technique, and one that's great for backgrounds X
