Posted on 29 Mar 2016

Hello there, today I am sharing this wonderful and simple card made using my range of POP paints.
Yes – it is that versatile and simple.

pop card detail 2step 1 – Select your colour of POP paint to use, a craft sheet, medium paintbrush and water.
step 1step 2 – Add some paint to your craft sheet using the paint brush.
step 2step 3 – Mist the paint with water. Use the paint brush to mix the water into the paint to form a liquid.
You don’t want it too runny.
step 3step 4 – Dip your water colour paper into the paint. I let my first colour (blue) dry first and then dipped it into the red.
TIP: to get a lighter shade or red, add more water and then dip your paper into the paint.
Use a heat gun to dry the first layer of paint. Then dip the card again into red with less water for a darker shade.
step 4step 5 – Leave the paint to dry. Trim the paint dipped piece smaller and adhere to the front of a card.
step 5Decorate the dipped card with a stamped sentiment and a wooden embellishment.
