CHF Challenge Chicks Paint Daubers!

First off....have you bought the latest edition of papercrafts? I am in there! I did a little happy dance when I received mine in the mail the other day! Just had to share!

There are so many ways to use paint I didn't know where to begin on this challenge! So I wanted to show you two different ways that I use paint.....First of all, the photo on the left is a SUPER close shot of these cuddling cardinals that are coming to CHF this week! I colored them with my copic markers. What an adorable image to play with! You can see the rest of the Friendly Kritter line HERE.
Here are my card deets:
Stamps: Cuddling Cardinals, Always be there (Friendly Kritters) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Fine Finials (Backgrounder) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Espresso Adirondack Ink (Ranger) Timber Brown (Stazon)
Classic Red (Prism) Clear Card Sheets (CHF)
Copic Markers
Lake Mist, Snow Cap Paint Daubers (Ranger)

Liquid Applique

Flower, Button (Making Memories)

Now, onto the two ways I used the paint. I swiped my paint daubers on the front of a clear card to provide a base to stamp my image on. Cool effect! I also used my paint dauber to stamp my background stamp on the red card stock. I left some of the background unpainted in the center so that I could write on the inside. See that liquid applique on the front of my clear card....YES! you can use your heat tool on this clear card stock.....I LOVE that it doesn't melt!

Make sure you hop around and check out the other CHF chick creations. Here are the links to their blogs:
