TWO BED TIME STORIES...

Hello Everyone! This is Chris Dickinson here! Welcome to the Creative Inspirations Blog! I am filling in today for the talented Samantha Star, who did not have her paints in time for her first post. 


For your viewing pleasure, I have TWO projects for you! Both using the Inspired By Challenge - Bedtime Stories. The first card uses the "Jack Be Quick" and the second card uses "Rudolph the Red-nose Reindeer."   We would LOVE it if you played along too!


My first project uses these dreamy, creamy paints! I have to admit. Once I started painting with them I could not stop. I sat down and painted about 10 images! The only reason I stopped was because it was my bed time. 


 These paints have just the right amount of sparkle to them and are SO easy to use! I started out by grabbing my water color paint brush and Plum and painted the candle.  The flame portion I painted with the Canary, Garnet, Mellow Yellow and Pumpkin and just a touch of plum in the center of the flame.  I used Antique Gold and Gold for the candle holder. The leaves were painted with Emerald and the berries were painted with Garnet and Burgundy for some shading.


You can really see the shimmer of these gorgeous paints on the white card stock before  I cut it out for the card...






For my second card, I used the Denim paint for the back ground of the stamped image. I painted the antlers with the Tan paint. I used the YUMMY Chocolate paint for the reindeer and Garnet for his cute little nose! The Raw Sienna paint was perfect for the stars and I used the Tutu Pink for the inside of his ears.




I hope you enjoyed these projects! Thank you for stopping by and taking a look! Have a GREAT weekend!
