Stamped and Painted | Butterfly card using POP Paint.

Posted on 22 Jul 2016

Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks’ Chiswick blog post with tons of inspiration.
I am currently working on a kitchen renovation using my POP Paint and was hoping to post that today but i need to paint a few more things.
So hang in there I know you are waiting for some home reno articles and inspiration – it’s on its way!
But in the meantime I made some cards using POP Paint.
I wanted to paint and add some colour to my stamped butterflies and had some POP paint on my desk so decided to try it out.
and here’s the card I made…
painted cardI know that POP paint is perfect for my art journaling and creating backgrounds, but how will it fare on something detailed like this.
Well the answer is perfectly.
Step 1 – stamp your images in this case my butterfly onto smooth white cardstock.
step1step 2 – add some POP paint onto a palette. I used a piece of packaging.
This way I can discard it afterwards.
PS. Notice how I added some shades of blue and pink watercolours into my pop paint to add different shades to my image.
It worked beautifully and the watercolours took on the consistency of the POP paint.
step2step 3 – Use a small artists brush and paint your image.
step3step 4 – Cover the painted image in a layer of dimensional glaze and sprinkle with shades of blue, turquoise and pink glitter.
Leave the glaze to dry naturally.
step4Notice how the glitter flakes drift inside the dimensional glaze creating a beautiful dimensional effect on the butterfly.
step5I added my image to a card with some patterned paper strips, sentiment piece, buttons and other embellishments.

Crafting is made fun using all your stash.
