MMAT02 – Credit Card Painting Technique

Mixed Media Art Technique 02 was all about credit card painting and here is what I did
with the completed background.

As I wanted to credit card painting and the brilliant colours to show through, I chose to decorate
the background with simple stamping, using black ink. My preference is to use
Brilliance Ink in Graphite Black for this project as it is a juicy inkpad, which is good for the more
solid designs and also because it will dry on most surfaces. As I has a thin coating of metallic gold
paint as the top layer, I needed to use an ink that would dry on the non-porous surface. I chose a
paisley design with stamps by See-Ds and used different sizes to cover my background.

Once dry, I cut up the sheet to make a simple birthday card, an ATC and mini handmade book covers (still to be turned into a book) And I have still got a little left over. Image on ATC from Art-e-zine - my favourite place to go for vintage images.

I hope this inspires you to get creating.

    I love this! It’s sort of ’70s retro! I’m new to credit card painting, but have loads of See-Ds. and other stamps. This could make great wrapping paper too, or could be folded into little gift boxes. Can’t wait to give it a go!
