Paint Dabbers

I had been longing to try this technique at CHF for quite some time and finally had a chance to do it:

Paint Dabbers Explored

Lori Craig - the amazing stamper that she is - outlined this use and I really enjoyed it!!!

Joyful Celebration:

I kept this card simple, because it was a first attempt. But it's certainly not the last. Once I stamped the images (with the pearl paint), I let it dry and then brayered over it with Shell Pink Adirondack dye ink. I sponged over the main image, letting the white show through a bit more for variation.

Here's a close up of the effect... the paint gives a wonderful texture too!
