Beautiful You



This week's Creative Inspirations Paints Challenge is all about MOM or a Special Lady in your life:) So, I thought it would be nice to make a Mother's Day card using one of my Mom's favorite colors and incorporating one of her favorite things...flowers. She is an avid gardener and loves all things bright and cheerful. The floral background was created by sponging Rose Quartz CI paint over a Dreamweaver stencil, then cut out using a Nesties Curved Rectangles die. The large blossom was made using the scraps from the background and another Nesties die...Dahlia. I love how the CI paint adds such a soft shimmer:) It isn't overpowering; and it adds that perfect touch of elegance. I just love that! If you look closely, you will see that the bow also has a hint of shimmer. Yup...you guessed it...it started out a simple, white ribbon...but got the star treatment by simply adding a beautiful frosting of Rose Quartz CI paint:) I hope you found a bit of creative inspiration today. Thank you for dropping by and sharing a portion of your day with us here at CI Paints!!!! I hope your day is filled with happiness and overflowing with blessings!!!

HUGS!!!
