Paint (n): a colored substance that is spread over a surface and dries to leave a thin decorative or protective coating; (v) cover the surface of (something) with paint, as decoration or protection; depict (someone or something) or produce (a picture) with paint.Does that not leave the door wide open for interpretation? I can't wait to see what you create, you crazy geniuses, you.
For my make, I saw a bird holiday card and thought, "hey, I can do that!" More or less--LOL. I recreated the dotty background by coating a Gelli plate with gray acrylic paint then pressing an embossing folder into it. I love the effect of applying different amounts of pressure to create the mottled background of the first pull. I used origami paper and my Cameo to create the bird silhouettes. They are so very pretty and their texture is amazing. Reminds me of fine mulberry paper. I love the gold detail on the paper too. I combined two sentiments and drew in the comma with a Copic multiliner. Maybe I should make a set of these!
