Shimmery Butterfly

Hello!  I am so excited to be part of the Creative Inspirations Paint design team, and today is my first "official" post.

At Michael's craft store, I found some chipboard shapes in the Dollar Bins and bought several packs.  This pretty, embossed butterfly was in there.  I thought it was the perfect specimen to receive some shimmery paints.  :-)

First, I wiped Whisper White craft ink lightly over the butterfly, so it hit the raised areas.  Next, I used a bunch of paints on here (all listed at the bottom of this post), and love the pearly look.  The Fleur de Lis rectangle die seemed perfect for a frame.

The bottom of the card was punched with a new-to-me EK Success Scroll Pattern punch.  Love it!

Thank you so much for joining me on my very first CIP post!  Hope I've inspired you to get out your paints and try this, too.
