paint? really?

i really hate wet messes...odd, considering what i've chosen for a hobby, but there it is. i do not like to get inky, or covered in paint. yet, i took on jingle belles 3rd challenge and lived to tell the tale. i painted, i didn't die, the card doesn't suck. the end.

stamps: making memories foam backgrounds, hero arts get merry! clear set
card stock: pti rustic cream
patterned paper: basic grey jovial
ink: hero arts black die ink
misc: plaid paint, pti button, cosmo cricket scalloped velvet, stash green and red satin ribbons, recollections pearls, ecru crochet cotton

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this! Why can't *I* think to stamp with paint, or stamp on patterned paper? WHY?! WHY?! Especially when I love it so.

Glad you played! :)

Love love love the paint over the patterned paper ... and I'm swooning over that scalloped velvet ... such a fabulous combination of elements in this design ... I'm pretty sure "doesn't suck" is an understatement :^) ... thanks for joining our jingle belles fun.

ok, first off: big, BIIIIIIIIIIG bonus ninja points for being willing to break out the paint regardless of mess issues; seriously impressive already.

and then: ♥HOLY MOLY♥ wouldja LOOK at that card??!?!!!!!!! i fear the assessment of "not sucking" is a weeeee bit of an understatement, ma'am...i would go so far as to say that thing ROCKS in a MAJOR "ac/dc at stonehenge" sort of way...and trust me...those are some serrrrrrrrrrrrious rocks, ok??!?! (♥LOVE♥ this!!!)

Your card most definitely does NOT suck, it's really great looking. I found this a challenging theme to incorporate but I like how you did it.

OOH neat! I'm loving how you masked a pretty busy bright paper with the white patterned paint. So neat. Great card.
