1st Creative Inspirations Paints Challenge

WOW...Do I love using these paints! The possibilities of what you can use them for is almost endless! Our first Creative Inspirations Paint challenge was a color challenge. We were to use yellow, green and lavender.

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

Here is a close-up of one of the butterflies! Look at all that shimmer! :)

I took the butterfly stamp and stamped it in the ink pad then used a fine paint brush to brush CI Fairy Dust paint on the stamp also. I then stamped the image on white cardstock.

CI Paints: Fairy Dust

Stamps: "Priceless" SU stamp set

Ink: SU Lavender Lace, Dew Drop Ivy, Stampabilities Yellow

Paper: Sage Green Cardstock, White Cardstock

Misc: Shear Lavender Ribbon from Hobby Lobby

Others I made:
I used all the same supplies to make this card the only difference being I used the CI paints to make the paper shimmer! So instead of buying shimmer paper you can also make your own with these paints! Like I said, the uses of these paints is endless!!

I stamped this image with black pigment ink and then embossed it with black embossing powder. I used an aqua pen to color in the image with the CI Paints. I just love all the shimmer!

CI Paints: Sage, Canary, Amethyst

Stamp: "Lily" Northwoods Rubber Stamps, Inc., "Thinking of You" from SU set (not sure which one as I picked this up from a rummage sale)

Paper: Sage Green Cardstock, White Cardstock, Purple from "Purple Passion" Value Pack from HL, Background piece from "Flower Shower" Spring Matstack

Ink: Black Pigment Ink, Dew Drop VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea

Misc: Yellow Shear Ribbon from HL, EK Success Punch "Dotted Wave"
