POP Paint | Father’s day stamped card.

Posted on 17 May 2016

Where has the month of May gone? Well at least we still have a few weeks to go until we really have to warm up for winter.
I have been busy with a BIG POP Paint project for the blog and hope to finish it up soon. But until then…
I am sharing some inspiration for Father’s day coming up in June.
fathersday card_mainI love those imperfect paint brush strokes. And these days you can find them all across the craft and art spectrum.
Anything from digital files to rubber stamps, but today I am sharing a neat trick on how to create your own paint brush strokes.
detailo2I stamped the background of my card using masking tape and PoP Paint for a really cool look.
Step 1 – You will need pop paint in 3 colours, palette knife and masking tape.
step1step 2 – Add some paint onto a sheet of acetate or palette.
step2step 3 – Mist the paint with water to water it down a bit and make it more workable.
step 4 – Tear a short piece of masking tape and press it into the paint.
step 5 – Lift the masking tape ‘stamp’ and press it onto your card front.
step5step 6 – Lift the masking tape to reveal your stamped image.
Continue stamping using different colours of PoP paint to cover the front of your card.
Add a stamped image and sentiments to the front of your card. Finish off your card with brads and some smaller ink splats.
detail 1I love how the imperfect stamped paint streaks create a beautiful and masculine effect for this card.
Let’s celebrate dad with a beautiful handmade card, making his day truly special this year.

Creating can be a wonderful journey and therapy making sense of things where life cannot, and I have tuned my life into this philosophy.
