Yellow Crocus by Holly

My name is Holly and this is my first post as a member of the Creative Inspirations Paints Design Team. I'm very excited to be here with these wonderfully creative ladies!

For my first post, I decided to use a January flower called the crocus. Since I'm not much of a gardener, I had to look up pictures of crocus to see what colors the different varieties can bloom in. There are several yellow ones, so I painted my crocus with the Sunshine CI paint. Don't you just love the shimmer of these paints?? Ahhhhhhhhh....... it makes me smile to see this pretty yellow shimmery flower.

Here is a close-up so you can see the gorgeous shimmer:

Stamps: A Year of Flowers I (Flourishes)
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento
Cardstock: White, Black
Creative Inspirations Paint: Sunshine
Other: Copic marker, ribbon (Michaels), oval punches (SU), frond punch (Martha Stewart)
