Wishing You A Beautiful Day

Hello friends, Julie here from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers and I'm super excited to be here! I discovered Creative Inspirations Paint last Spring and instantly loved them for their shimmer.  I can't tell you how excited I am to now be on the design team for these wonderful products!  Let the fun begin!!
Even though it's October, I'm still seeing butterflies.  They were the inspiration behind today's project.  I wanted to make something with fall colors, but using butterflies. 
I made a fun card to share today, and used Creative Inspirations Paint on the embellishments:

I cut this easel card out on my Silhouette.
Here's a close up of the embellishments:
The flower looked similar to this one before I painted it:
I painted the crocheted flower with fuchsia, Turquoise, and Sage Creative Inspirations Paint.  The button was white when I started, but I coated it with Mocha Latte Creative Inspirations Paint. I love how it brought out the texture in the button!

I'll leave you with another angle of the easel card, so you can see how the wings of the butterfly appear to be flying.

Julie, I love the idea of painting the crocheted flower. I think it adds so much more to what would have been a ho hum flower. Thanks for the idea. Those are some beautiful colors but I have to favor the turquoise.
