Stamping on Painted backgrounds

Today I thought I would share with you Stamping on painted backgrounds.
I adore my Lumiere paints - they have such a glow to them and they go on so smoothly and are easy to stamp on top of.
All you need to do for this technique is take Lumiere paint and paint a piece of cardstock with various colors - I used a sponge to dab the paint onto the card. ( have a light hand - that way the paint dries quickly and you are ready to stamp in about 5 to 10 minutes) If you don't have any Lumiere paint then try with normal acryllic paint ie Dala and add some highlights with the Metallic Dala paints.
Materials: Black, Copper and White cardstock, Copper embossing powder, Clear embossing ink pad, black brilliance ink pad, selection of stamps, rhinestones, Lumiere paints and sponge, Gold pen
Method: Take a piece of white cardstock and sponge Lumiere paints directly onto the surface of the cardstock using a sponge. Allow to dry. Stamp images using black brilliance ink pad and then go around edges with gold paint pen and mount onto black and then copper cardstock and then to cardfront. Use clear embossing ink pad to stamp word on cardfront and then emboss using copper embossing powder. Add rhinestones and you are done.
