Creative Inspirations Paints- Go 3-D

For our Creative Inspirations challenge this week, our challenge was 3-D. I took the opportunity to make my first ever easel card!ShellySchmidtMay08FCDCI3DcloseupIMG_0640
I had a heck of a time getting a good photo due to all of the shimmer on the card. The flowers are painted with Light Purple Creative Inspirations Paints. Other colors used: the tray-Coal, The wine/champaign glasses-W1 Copic with Angel Dust CI paint, The wine bottle is Green Olive and Buttercup CI paint- I left the label blank for the time being-but will fill it in with initials before giving it away.

The purple circle is a piece of Spray starch and Pearl-ex cut out with the Cuttlebug (see- never throw away your scraps!).  The stamps are Firecracker Designs by Pamela

My nephew just got engaged- this little box has 4 little drawers (made with the SU matchbox die) - I am going to work on finding trinkets or a poem I can wrap up for :
Something Old
Something New
Something Borrowed
Something Blue!
You can view other DT samples for this challenge (all in one place)  HERE
Have a great day!
