More Faux Paint Swatch technique

Hi all!
Hetty here with some more samples
of the Faux Paint Swatch technique from the

The top card I made for the Crowning Day of
our new King on April 30 with
a digital stamp by Create with TLC.

I made the background with ink and then
put the paper in my prin ter to print the
image on top.
It is colored with pencil and dots of
a gold and red pearl pen.
Even a ruby (sticky gemstone)
in the crown.

This card is made with a sentiment
from Club Scraps April kit called
Spring Chorus.
And part of Michael Strong's cloisonné
pot stamp.
You won't believe it, but the flower is
made with the spider die that is from
 Michael Strong's Halloween
collection. You need one green one
and 8 white spiders to make
the flower. On top a little
punched out flower, or sun  and
a white pearl pen drop on top.

Have a creative day!

Fabulous! The spider die is just perfect! I can't wait to make one. Your choice of colors and the stratification work so well together. Mike is creative for the basics and you take it to the next level! Well done.
