Sketch Challenge for CI Paints

Good morning! This week for Creative Inspiration Paints we were given a sketch to create a card! I am really happy with my results, I did stay pretty close to the sketch, but really was enjoying playing with the paints! I LOVE THEM!!

Check the CI Paints blog for all the other wonderful creations!


My Card:

The top left flower is just a regular Prima Fleure not painted with CI paints next to ones I painted with "Fairy Dust".

I also used this paint brush I found in with my painting supplies to paint the edges of the paper. I love the result, it actually looks as though the shimmer was right in with the ink!

I also used the brush to paint on "Chocolate" paint on the pieces of paper I used to cut the "Doily Lace" punch with. So the strips are also shimmery!

CI Paint: Chocolate, Fairy Dust
Stamps: "Priceless" SU Stamp Set for the flourishes
Ink: ColorBox Fluid Chalk "Chestnut Brown"
Paper: K&Company "Roam"
Misc: Prima Fleures "Nursery Tales Collection", SH Rhinestone Brads "Fire Circle" Pumpkin, Martha Stewart Punch "Doily Lace

My mission this year is to get a stock pile of cards, so I have been trying to make a few cards at once. So I have a few others I also created with this sketch.
I just love all the shimmer!! Ithink it adds so much to the flowers, rather than them being just plain!
