This card is inspired by the ‘make your mark’ challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. I will also be entering this painted background birthday card into the anything goes challenges over at Inspiration Destination and Penny’s Paper Crafty Challenge.
I started with metallic paints from Aztec paints in a lilac, mint green and silver and used a flat wash brush to create this mixed thin stripe background. After letting this dry, I trimmed the card and mounted it on silver mirror card. Then I added a silver Happy Birthday die cut and added two sized matching lilac flower gems.
This is the first time I have tried painting a full background and I really like the effect. I can’t wait to try out other colours and different styles too.
