It’s Time to Bloom

Hi stampers.  Did you enjoy your Easter weekend?

Today I have a card that uses Creative Inspirations Paint.  As you know, I love these buttery paints that leave behind a shimmer just like Twinkling H2O’s.  These paints are so easy to use too.  The orange in the bow and along the bottom of the skirt was painted with a CI paint stick, and the orange on the collar and dress were painted with my chisel-end paint brush.  Creative Inspirations paints leave shimmer which I will show you in my close up

This cute Raggedy Anne is called You’re a Doll and is a digital image from Sweet and Sassy Stamps.  Sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!   Nope, that’s not a blemish in my photo:  it’s a skin blemish from using too much glue.

Card Details:

  • Sponge a sky onto the background
  • Use the Martha Stewart winter icicle punch and turn it upside down to create grass
  • Adhere image to background, leaving the glue off of the face
  • Add a butterfly to the smaller image area
  • Use the Dry Embossed Wash technique in the background
  • Add ribbon (SU here) to card

A note about Creative Inspirations Paint

  • It comes as a thick melted butter in small pots, a little larger than Twinkling H2O’s
  • CI paints are easier to use than Twinkling H2O’s because CI paints come in a liquid form
  • There are over 50 colours to choose from
  • CI paints can be painted on with their paint stick or with a regular paint brush
  • Paint adheres to vellum and non porous surfaces
