Touch of Vintage Shimmer

7" X 7"
Hi Everyone,

My post today, will be my last one as a design team member for Creative Inspirations Paint.  However, you'll still see me pop in from time to time with a creative project of some type - so its not really goodbye :-)  

You know me, I love vintage, so had to create something a little more old worldly.  The ribbon was painted with splashes of Chocolate, Burnt Sienna and Tan - love how you can colour 'anything' with this wonderful product - just a simple zap to heat-set in the microwave and an iron, and away you go! 
Of course, dare I say 'GOLD' has been added liberally (nothing new) to the flowers, some fully coated and others only the edges of petals.  Chocolate highlights the carnations.  The corrugated cardboard beneath the image has been washed with Ivory.  Oh my that Ivory is stunning on the corrugated board, and really leaves the most glorious shimmer.
Soon the new design team members will be announced and I am sure they will bring many wonderful creations to inspire everyone.  

Thank you to Kendra, and my fellow team-mates for being such a fabulous support throughout my term, and to Molly for creating a truly fantastic product...
