Just For Fun: Paint & More

Hi Everyone! Have you seen the new crafts section at Target? It's awesome. I recently picked up some paint (check out my Instagram account @ashmarcu) and wanted to incorporate it in to a card. 


I started by die cutting a card using Mama Elephants Tags a Lot die, then swirled some paint in a big circle. Next I layered lots of die cuts (mostly from Amy Tan's new Rise & Shine collection). Next I layered in some washi tape and added the typewriter stamped with a sentiment from My Favorite Things You Gnome Me.


Next, I created a Washi Bow using Bella Blvd tape and a Tim Holtz paperclip. It need a little bit more so I added some "paint splatters" with my Copics. Yep, I just dotted my markers here and there to create the look of splatters. Easy and not messy. ;)


Thanks for stopping by today! It's time for more creating....
