Cardmaking with Flowers

"Simple Flower"

 It amazes me how different you can make a card when using the same topper. I really enjoy using this flower design, which you will have seen appearing many times in my cardmaking. Here I have used Silver Relief paint with White opaque (126 ), Light Blue ( 501), and Olive Green (620) glass paints - the two colours have been mixed with white opaque to create soft pastel colours in keeping with the fresh patterned papers. You do not have to use the Decorfin brushes with the glass paints you can  use acrylic brushes however, you just need to remember that you must clean with warm soapy water or turpentine keeping it clean, otherwise the hairs will harden and you will end up chucking out.

Within the flower topper I made I drew small circles with the silver relief paint then painted in with the pastel blue (a mix of light blue & white opaque) which created a nice balance of colour and, gave more of a dimension to the flower itself.
