Painted with love

Hi crafters. I’ve been experimenting with painting with acrylic, then stamping over the top. I decided to really test it with a detailed stamp. On this card I have used the Tim Holtz Glorious Bouquet stamp. First I stamped it in Fade Out ink, then I painted areas with matt acrylic. It is very detailed, so I didn’t try to be exact with colour placement. I did as much as I could work out before adding some black archival ink on top. That allowed me to work out what colour to place in the remaining areas. I then stamped a few times more with black archival ink. My stamping isn’t perfect but as it looks vintage, I didn’t think it would matter. I added a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings stamp set in acorn archival ink.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Floral frenzy

Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: With love.

Thanks for visiting,

Christine
