CI Paints ~ Just look at that shimmer!!!
That's all for tonight. Been working a lot of hours this week to get caught back up, we've been getting a lot of rain so I have fallen a little behind!
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! :)
Size: 5" x 7"

Check the blog out for all the other great creations!
I used the sponge daubers to dab the paint on the acetate. I also let the little guy dip his fingers in the paint and then dab it on the acetate, he thought it was so fun to help out!! :) Considering it is a card for daddy I though it would be fun to have him help!
I think the paints shimmer even more when used on the acetate! Not only is the acetate itself shine, but with the shimmery paints on it I think it shimmer's even more! I also used the paints on the brads so that they would match!
I used CI Paints; Sage, Evergreen, Royal Blue, Sapphire and Turquoise.
