Paint and embossing

 In my stamp group this week the challenge was to use a brayer and add paint to the flat side of the embossing folder so the color would be in the background, much like I have done with inks in the past.  I had never tried that before and I will say I probably will never do so again, LOL!

I was not really happy with my outcome, had to throw the first one away because I had too little paint on it. This attempt I went with just because I wasn't in the mood for all the clean up that is involved. But I know there are those of you that don't mind getting messing and like working with paints and such so I thought I would share here just incase you would like to give it a try. 

We were to use at least two paints on the folder and I went with a yellow and green, brayerd the green over the leaves area and the yellow onto the empty area.  

You can see in this next picture is what it looked like coming out of the embossing folder, I had a lot of areas around the leaves that were white and I just didn't like that, so I took a bit of the paint with my paint brush and filled in the spots.  I still didn't care for the leaves and all that to be white so I decided to use some rub on metallic to go over the birds and branches.  Still not sure what I think about it.

Well your finished card turned out beautifully in spite of you not enjoying the process so much! I know the feeling though -- I hate throwing things away, and tend to not repeat techniques that don't turn out well on the first try.

It sounds messy, but I like how yours turned out. I've never had much luck with this technique even with ink, yet I keep trying. Pretty embossing folder and I do like the painted look of your background.
