I am always drawn to paint splatters. I’m not quite sure what it is about them but I love the way they look. Sadly, mine never turn out the way I imagine them when I start. LOL This Tim Holtz Embossing Folder solves that problem for me. The drips are embossed into the card stock and I just painted over them using some of Testors Paints and Paint Pen.
The card above was created with the Red Paint Pen. It was a dream to work with! All the good things with paint without any mess. The cards below show the difference between painting with the pen (left) and painting with actual red paint (right). They look very similar!
The same card was created using blue paint and a paint brush. It’s paired with the card created using the red paint pen.
Here’s the close up of the blue paint.
As you can see, I loved them so much that I got totally carried away and made a bunch of these!
Here are the paints I received from Testors. The color of the pen and paint were the same.
The details for the card are as follows:
- Basic Black Card Stock (Stampin’ Up!) cut at 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″.
- 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White Card Stock (SU!) embossed using Tim Holtz’ “Dripping” Embossing Folder.
- Testors Red Paint Pen applied over the “drips.”
- “Thank You” (from “Another Thank You Stamp Set” was stamped in Black Archival Ink (Ranger) and embossed using Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.
- Black and White Sequins were attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
