Finger painting?


Hello Everyone! Happy Weekend! Oh yeah! Time for One layer finger painting at LIM Loads of giggles about this one here, I am inked!!!


Lovely idea I think, thanks Chrissie and the ladies at LIM, I have enjoyed playing...........using my little finger only in the end, I started with the top dot and turning my little finger on it's side, inked the droopy petals.

After I was happy with the flowers I drew the stems with Inktense pencils and rubbed them out again, too heavy :D Embossing with clear EP made the ink stable enough to add the circular background and the Donna Downey sentiment.
It's quite shiny now. Thank you again for your visit, hugs Gay x

Hands down, or fingers, you nailed the finger painting challenge. Your card is perfect, absolutely lovely. You have my vote for ShowCASe this week.

Now I need to something else since my two attempts have been awful. :)

Hi, Gay! This card is definitely a work of art in addition to being a beautiful greeting card! Love the finger painting technique you have used here to create these unique flowers. Your background technique is also very impressive! A wonderful quote, and you have a pricey card, for sure!

Who would ever know the flowers were fingerprints! Fab card Gay.

LEELOOE said...

great idea! Fingers as a brush ... but I did not think about the fact that you can bounce fingerprints and not necessarily rubbed. Revelation.
