Card-decorative painting

Decorative painting or folk art is very beautiful and most important, very easy , no previous experience is needed ! Its also called Tole Painting , its quite an old form of painting now in its new avatar its called Stroke painting. It can be used for painting on handmade cards with fabulous results.
I have painted daisies on handmade sheet colored with coffee powder solution and acrylic paints. Sure smells good and gives a nice background color too.There are coffee powder paintings, more of that later !!!!
I think handmade paper is great for making cards as its folds nicely and has a lovely texture.
Check out decorative painting instructions and patterns here.


Thanks for the feedback!
