Spellbinders – Artful Brush

Hello there!

Thanks for joining me today as I share a card made using the Paint Your World Collection by Vicky Papaioannou! 

Her collection features 4 paint-brushed themed die sets, a painter’s pallet, and a stamp set that works well with them all.  Exercising some restraint, I limited myself to two paint brush sets and the stamp set.

My card today combines the Butterfly Burst and Artful Brushes sets to create a feminine artistic brush with lots of pink details, flowers, and butterflies.  When I make die-cut cards like this, I like to plan out all my colors first and die-cut all at once so putting the card together is fun and creative.  I have a video showing my process and hope you enjoy it!

My background is a watercolor wash using some Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Inks.  I applied the color initially with a brush, then switched to using some cellophane cut from stamp/die packaging to do some ink-smooshing.

Once I have all the die-cut elements ink-blended to give them some color, I pieced them together to prepare for the final card layout.  The flowers I used today are from the Mini Blooms and Sprigs set.  I added the brush and large paint splat down first, then worked on my flowers, foliage, then butterflies.

To finish, I stamped a sentiment from the Paint Your World Sentiments set and fussy cut around the letters for more interest.  I hope you enjoyed this card!  You could re-create this card in a rainbow of colors and it would be so much fun!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. Just gorgeous, I didn’t show the same constraint, all but the painters palette fell into my basket. Haven’t had time to play just yet but next in line, can’t wait. Thank you for the inspiration, I just love it, Jane x
