Creative Inspirations Paints Color Challenge

Wow, I can't believe we're on our 6th Challenge with CI Paints!! This is the final one for this round! I have had so much fun working with these paints!! They are by far one of my most favorite scrapping supplies!! They are, in my opinion, a MUST have!!

This time around we were given a color challenge. We were to use "beach-y colors" (blues, sand, yellows, etc.) Going into this one I had a neat father's day card idea, but it don't come out they way I really was imagining it to, so I went back to the drawing board and came up with this idea.

Make sure to check the CI Blog out to see all the other great creations!!

I decided I was going to try something with my Cricut for a card! I haven't really used my Cricut in awhile, so that was also my goal with this card. I used my new cart Home Decor to make this card! I just love this butterfly!

I used my waterbrush to paint on the paints on my embossed piece of paper. I first sent the paper through my Cuttlebug then spent some time and painted "Fairy Dust" on the embossed part. The entire time I was doing this I was thinking of all the different card ideas I could do by using this technique.

View of the card with the butterfly being 3-D and also the blue swirl! I didn't completely glue down the blue swirl so that it would also stick up a little bit.

Look at all the BEAUTIFUL shimmer!!! Ohhh La La! :)
