I used paint for the background, but also on the flower and behind the ribbon. Yup, I used my denim ribbon. In order to get contrast, I painted behind it in the cream paint so that it stood out and acted as a layer. I paper pieced the flower so I could get the paint on just the flower. I paper pieced the center too with a soft colored designer paper I had. I also painted along the edge of the kraft cardstock. Paint got everywhere! I got it all over my craft table, myself, my hands, and the surrounding supplies on my desk! I gotta practice with splattering the paint. But anyway...I'm glad I was able to play along.
