Today is my first project post for the Creative Inspirations blog. If you've ever wandered around my blog, you'll know that I use these paints and products a LOT. They're so sheer and shimmery that I can't resist adding them to many of my cards.
Today's card features some fun flowers that I made using several colors of CI Paints and the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die.
I painted them with multiple layers of paints, first with Tutu Pink around the centers, then Sky Blue, Mellow Yellow, and Sage for the appropriate colored layers.
Then I layered them, centering them with a pearl. See how the patterned papers show through the layers of paint?
Here's one closeup showing the shimmery goodness...
...and another closeup showing the patterns.
And that was all there was to it! I have lots of flowers left over for future projects as I got a little carried away while making them.
The rest of the card was simple. A quick run through the Big Shot for the base layer with a dot embossing folder, a simple sentiment enhanced with pearls from my stash, and some Metallic Inspirations matte brads finish this simple, yet still colorful card.
Thank you so much for joining me and I hope we see you over at our latest CI Challenge, the theme of which is Anything Goes!
