365 Cards - #140 Paint It! & Card Patterns #24

Over on 365 Cards today the challenge is to Paint It! Paint part of your card. Well believe it or not I painted the chipboard flower with Kaisercraft KaiserColour craft acrylic in Antique White and then I used Distress Inks over it lol. But the chipboard kept soaking up the paint!! I had to put about six coats on it.
This card was designed using Card Patterns sketch for this week which is below.

Well it is short and sweet from me tonight as I have the markets tomorrow.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU More Mustard and Very Vanilla cardstock. Kaisercraft designer paper and paint. Ranger distress inks. Vintage lace from stash as is the vintage copper embellishment. Unknown brand chipboard flower. Amazing Creations stamps. Kaisercraft rub on.

This is beautiful. I love the antique feel of it. You should absolutely frame this one and hang in on a wall someplace! Great job!

Wow, that's a lot of coat for a chipboard! Did it become flimsy after? Just curious. Love your spin on the sketch and that chipboard sold me. :)
