Outlines - Metallic Paint


This week's challenge for the Outlines design team is to use Metallic Paint.  As you might have figured out, I used Gold Metallic Paint. ;-)   This paint is really fun to work with and there are a lot of possibilities for it.  I have previously used it on this card and this card

I painted the Inspiration Background (K-233) and Thanks (C-261) images with the metallic paint, then stamped them on black card stock.   The paint washes off the rubber easily with a little water and a gentle scrub with a toothbrush.  I layered the Thanks on a chipboard flourish that was also colored with the metallic paint.  I accented the corners of the Thanks image and the flourish with some Light Colorado Topaz crystals.  I wrapped black and gold ribbon around the center, tied a bow with the gold ribbon, then mounted the whole thing on a black panel.

Please be sure to check out the cards the rest of the design team made using Metallic Paint:
