God's Grace is Sufficient


Oh my...I'm posting twice in one week...it's a record!  Running little eP sure is time consuming and my crafting time has taken a serious hit!  However, I was ahead of schedule with this week's to do list so I had some time to create just for the joy of creating...love that!
 
This card is for this week's sketch challenge over on Splitcoast.  And I decided to have a little fun with paint on this card.  Once my card layout was completed, using beautiful paper's from Authentique's Thankful line, I got to work on creating my tree.  I used the Tree Background stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy to stamp the branches in Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Then I grabbed a few Adirondack Paint Dabbers, poured the paint on a paper plate, got an old toothbrush and went to town with creating "leaves" for the tree!  I dipped the toothbrush in the paint and then pounced the toothbrush up and down on the paper to get little splotches of color.  Abstract, no?  Once the paint was dry I just added the sentiment, from the Amazing Grace stamp set, and a few pearl embellishemnts.
 
What kind of projects have you created with paint?  Share!  And enjoy today's card!

Beautiful sentiment and card Kim! Amen!

I love your painted leaves...I love to splatter with paint and color the edges in at times~
