Here is a project I made for a color challenge at the Creative Inspirations Paint Blog- colors Yellow, green and lavender. Sadly, I am in need of two sympathy cards.
I made the background of this card using a new Technique Junkies Faux Velvet technique- love it in real life! The technique called for glimmer mist- I used my CI paint instead- I put water in my mini mister, and loaded the end of my paintbrush with paint, then stirred it inside the mini mister, adding paint until it was the correct color. Here I used Light purple then Royal purple. I wish I could capture the shimmer in the background!
I colored this image from Firecracker Designs by Pamela with the Marker Watercolor Wash technique, then painted over the top with Creative Inspirations Paints Light Purple, Mango and Sunshine. The SU marker colors are Lovely Lilac, Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango. There is a very pale highlight of Curry around the image. I added Old Olive leaves around the rose to highlight.
Here is the same technique done with Sunshine Creative Inspirations paint in the mini mister-again, wish I could capture the shimmer. I painted the image as above and applied the CI paint over the top. There is a very pale Lilac wash outside the image. The CS is Crushed Curry from SU.
These cards were inspired by the Creative Belli challenge-spray it (shimmer).
The Creative Inspirations Paints are easy to use, they are water based, and a little goes a long way! You can paint buttons, brads, paper, plastic, etc!!! If you paint them over Copic coloring, the blending will show through. You can also color ribbon and flowers to match your project. The paints come in more than 50 colors!
Thanks so much for stopping by- I hope these cards will bring comfort to my friends who have lost loved ones.
