You may recall, earlier in the month I went on a Canal Art / Signwriting Masterclass. Since then I have had a little practice with the techniques I learnt, using the paint supplies I have in my craft stash.
This morning I couldn't sleep, so decided to get up and have a painting session making this card. It is a far cry from Canal Art, I think I'd call it more "Folk Art Style". I have a lot more practicing to do to get the brush to work in my favour, but I enjoyed the calming process of painting.
I used a selection of paints I already had, some with more success than others. I mainly used Tim Holtz Distress Paints with some Paperartst chalk paints (which were less of a success, the white isn't solid enough, but lesson learnt).
For the sentiment, I used a stamp from a Lavinia Stamps set called "Heartfelt Verse" stamped in Versafine Clair "Glamorous" pink ink.
