Flower and Butterfly card front

Painted on papyrus paper with Jacquard Lumiere acrylic paints.



Oh my, Pat, that is a lovely card front. It must look spectacular in real life as I imagine it glimmers and shimmers :) I love the papyrus paper as well. It adds a lot of texture without adding layers, doesn't it.

Playing with paints is always fun. I also enjoy the Peeling Paint technique, for example. Sewing on cards also adds interest and a frame. And adding a little Black Magic. with black cardstock and chalks can be dramatic! I love all the different techniques we can try out in paper crafting.

I hope to see more of your work on PaperCraftCentral, Pat ☺

Happy crafting
