April Showers with CI Paints


Today I'd like to show you a get well card using paints and glitters from Creative Inspiration Paints, because shimmer and glitter are bound to make anyone feel better, right?  I hope it makes my stepdaughter feel better - she had an emergency appendectomy a couple of days ago and isn't feeling very well right now.

I've followed the sketch which was shared by the talented Kristie over at Stamp Nation (here for non-members) except I flipped it on its side.

I've paper pieced the little umbrellas and rain boots using various printed papers.

The rain boots have been glammed up with Resplendence Angel Dust, and the sun behind the sentiment has been painted with Sunshine and Pumpkin Creative Inspirations Paints.

The raindrops were first stamped with grey ink and then again using Sky Blue CI Paint.

I even made a matching envelope, coloring the sun and cloud with Copics and using CI Paints for the raindrops again.

Thank you for joining me today, and don't forget to head on over and check out our Anything Goes challenge.  We'd love to have you play along!

Happy crafting!

This is just fantastic, Shea. Loving the wellington boots and the umbrellas.... it actually reflects the weather I am having at the moment but hope your sentiment is a signal for brighter weather to come for me (LOL).
