morning I uploaded my latest video where I show how I made the Petal Palette card I
shared on Sunday.
I had so much fun playing with this card before I made
the video, although this technique has raised more questions for me than
of the things I tried yesterday was painting over the entire layer of
the Petal Passion Desgner Series Paper (DSP), rather than just the white areas,
which is the way I did it on the first card.
As the paint brush marks
don’t show up on the black areas of the DSP once it had dried, it doesn’t matter which way
you paint i.e. just the white areas or the whole layer.
The question that does remain is, how much ink does this technique actually use?
also wondered if it’s possible to paint the designs that have a white, rather than a black, background? And if it is possible, would it use even more ink?
The answer to
the first question is definitely yes you can paint the DSP designs that have a white background, and it certainly looks fabulous on
the design I chose to paint.
may remember on my blog on Sunday, I said that I didn’t know what
possessed me but I stamped the branch the bird was sitting on inside the
card, in Wild Wasabi.With the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped
over it again, and it still looked grim!
I took a piece of Whisper White
cardstock and stamped the bird using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Again, with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the branch so the
bird was sitting on it.
I coloured the images in, and die cut it using
one of the square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, which I adhered over
the original stamping using Tombow!
Unfortunately, I forgot to
photograph it for you!! DOH!
I hope you give this technique a try – it really is fun! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

Love them ALL, Jan … and the one where you've used the white background to colour over, fabulous!! LOVE this entire suite! And BTW, you won't be using anymore of your Blend on the lighter background … same dimensions so you're covering the same amount of paper. I love it too!! Well done!!
Hi, Geraldine. That's what I thought, it just looks like it's using more because you can actually see it! LOL! There are so many different ways you can paint the DSP e.g. the one with dots or small flowers, just paint some randomly, or different colours! It's so versatile. I love it! Happy crafting. JanB.
