VCMP – Texture
Well, I’m back at it again today making cards for Operation Write Home. This challenge asks for cards with texture for those who can’t see the cards they were sent. The painting is stamped on Sticky Back Canvas and painted with Claudine Hellmuth paints. Stamps are from Hampton Arts. The great thing about these paints is they are soft, creamy, and vibrant. Make sure you use archival ink if you are going to use paints on sticky back so you don’t get smearing. With these paints you can also mix multiple colors from just a few with the provided chart by Claudine. Behind the painting is a piece of Club Scrap paper embossed with Cuttlebug water texture. The 3rd layer of texture is the background, which is actually a cutting plate, however, if you use an embossing matt instead of the regular sandwich, you get texture instead of a die cut. You can do that with any die you have and make some great textures.I colored the background initially with Pan Pastel’s then edged it with some distress inks in Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean. Card stock is Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue – I love this color. The sentiment is also SSS.
