Papertrey Ink-Blog Hop Challenge – August 25

Here is the inspiration photo for the Blog Hop Challenge.

I decided that I wanted to capture the texture of the paint as well as the colour.  At first, I thought about digging out some Acrylic paints but then decided that coloured embossing paste would really emphasize the texture.  I had the paintbrushes from the Friendship Jar Fillers set so the card came together quickly.

I coated the paintbrushes with clear embossing powder so make them stand out more against the strong background.  I think it turned out quite well.
