Hello, CIP friends. Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers. Today, I have two birthday cards I made using Creative Inspirations Paint to share with you. They both use the same technique:
I started with a white cardstock base. I used some mists to add some color splatters to the stark white. Then, I stamped the leaf stamps randomly on the paper. I used some ink colors that would match the paints I wanted to use and stamped with those, including the sentiment. I then went to work with my paint colors, and painted the leaves, using it more like a wash, just to get the shimmer. I used Creative Inspirations Paint in Rustic Red (on sale!), Green Olive, Pumpkin (on sale!), and Burnt Clay (on sale!).
Here's another angle of the first card to better show the shimmer...
I placed a few sparkles from my stash on the card, too, to add a little bling. This card was one of my husband's birthday cards last month. He loved it!
His sisters' birthday is a couple weeks after his, and we got together to celebrate them both. Here's the card I gave to her:
I used the exact same technique on this card, only stamping the random leaves a little differently, and using pearls instead of rhinestones. Don't you love the leaves in the background? That was our backyard about a month ago. All the leaves are gone now. :( Winter's coming.
Here's a view of the shimmer...
I LOVE this paint! If you haven't tried it yet, you need to treat yourself. With the sale colors, now's the perfect time!
