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.
I 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.
I 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.
step 2 – Add some paint onto a sheet of acetate or palette.
step 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.
step 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.
I 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.
