Hello PTI friends!
If you love playing along with PTI's MIM, you're gonna love this week
with Dawn. She shows us how she created a background on a card
she did by using painted brushstrokes.
Dawn makes it look easy. But have to tell you, it took me several
tries to get something I liked. The brushed cardstock I ended up with
is one I added gold paint to at the end. IRL, I liked it. Photographing
made it look a bit too busy.
One of the things I loved about this technique was the ease making 2 cards.
The white is my favorite of the 2. I cut the word 'Christmas' off the Holly Jolly
Christmas die so it would fit within and on my Tag die.
Lots of greenery from 2 of my favorite Raspberry Suite sets: Gran's Garden and
Holiday Greens. The fabulous bow is from Corner Adorner: October, and 2 cards for Christmas
A few tips: I stamped my images using a misti so I
could go over them with shading. Then for added color intensity, I stamped again
with versa mark, and sprinkled with clear embossing powder.
Both sentiments were die cut with shimmer cardstock, for a more
I will definitely use this fun technique again. I'd like to try it
with softer a softer pallet next time. Maybe with pastels.

Happy Crafting, and Happy shopping!
