I was excited when I saw the technique for this week's MIM! Back in the day, before I discovered paper crafting, one of my favorite crafts was painting ceramics, and dry brushing is a great technique to get depth and texture in ceramics painting.
For my card, I dry-brushed green paint around the vintage cream focal point panel. Then I stamped it with a grid background stamp from Market Street Stamps using Jenni Bowling Malted Milk ink, which is just dark enough to add that bit of texture without overwhelming.
I then added flowers from Daydreamer in Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise and Terracotta Tile, with all but one stamped and hand-cut so that I could pop them up on dimensional adhesive.
For the sentiment, I die-cut Little Labels and dry-brushed again using a paint color that matched Terracotta Tile. I stamped the frame in Malted Milk again and the sentiment in brown. It's popped up on the focal point, which is matted on Terracotta Tile and then I added the twine, in keeping with the rustic look and feel of the card.
Thanks for looking!
