The Beauty of Winged Things - Paint Resist

This month's 'Bring Back Beautiful' challenge at Flourishes is The Beauty of Winged Things. For my card I used the stamp set Butterfly Blossoms and a paint resist technique. I followed the instructions given on an online card class found here, however there are a few You Tube videos out there that are similar.

I didn't have a large background stamp for the paint resist so instead I brayered pearlized acrylic paint onto one side of an embossing folder and stamped this onto a piece of white Neena cardstock. Be sure to wash the paint from your brayer and embossing folder right away.

Supplies -
Paper - Neena Classic Crest White, White Daisy, Topiary & Moonstruck CS (CTMH)
Stamps - Butterfly Blossoms (Flourishes)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko), Moonstruck, New England Ivy, Watermelon & Gypsy (CTMH), Pearlized Acrylic paint (CTMH), White Gelly Roll pen. clear embossing powder
Accessories - 3/8" organdy ribbon, clear sparkles (CTMH), Bling Borders (Want2Scrap)
Other - embossing folder (Crafts Too), Fancy Tags Two (Spellbinders), brayer, wire, 3D foam
