Hand Painted Card

Hand painted card then used a serenity stamp and some Nestibilities Long Rectangles and a bit of ribbon to finish.
I'll never be an artist but I do like to dabble with paint, this was painted with acrylic paint.

A closer view, as you can see I'm not Picasso but I do like to try.

If that's not artistic, I don't know what is! Your work is absolutely beautiful, have no doubt about it. You obviously enjoy it, which is the most important thing, but don't minimize your ability.

Colleen said...

I agree!! you've done a beautiful with your painting. You would be great painting folk art!!

Who needs Picaso when we have Jak!! This is beautiful! The colors and depth are very appealing and the eye is immediately drawn to the flowers first. In fact, I need to go back to the post to see the sentiment! I couldn't tell you what it says, I got so caught up in the flowers!

This card is gorgeous Jak, dont put yourself down. I have always wished I could paint but my efforts are limited to painting Thomas the Tankl engine on my grandsons bedroom wall, not exactly fine art and no where near as good as this.
You are an amazingly talented person and should be proud to say so

It's a stunning card and you should be proud to show it, I wish I was as untalented with a brush as you seem to be.
