This was yet another acrylic painting that overall I was not happy with, but rather than bin it I decided to cut it up and kinda collage the pieces to emphasise the bits I did like.
I do like the colours of red, coral and gold with swooshes of white brushed over the top for a bit of movement.
The lovely stamp is an old Anna Griffin stamp which I think has quite an ethnic look and so I stamped it in fab Martha Stewart Pale Bronze acrylic paint. I actually prefer stamping with acrylic paint now rather than ink pads, and use both my clear and rubber stamps with acrylic paint. It was only until recently that I would never have done this, but I keep a bowl of cold water on my desk and I put the stamps straight into the bowl of water before the paint dries, and then use a stiff brush to wash off the paint. As a result all my stamps are still in perfect condition.
It just so happened that I had some irridescent tulle fabric in the same colours I had used in my painting, so I just ripped some off and tied it as ribbon to finish my card. The sentiment is by Stampin Up.
