Creative Inspirations-Sun, Sand and turf……………

This week, the Design Team at Creative Inspiration Paints was challenged to a color challenge……


I sure wish the glimmer of this paint would show up better in the photo’s!
I started with the Surf- I found this great image- a D2D 100 member freebie at the new Crafters Digital Art Center.  (My husband just returned from a relaxing fishing trip in Canada, so I know he will enjoy a Father’s Day with a fish theme).  The sentiment is from a great clear stamp set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela-see it HERE.
CI paint colors used: Green Olive, Seafoam, Aqua Marine, Tanzanite, Turquoise, and Fairy Dust.  Colors used in the Mini Mister: Tan, Sunshine, Tanzanite. I used a Fantastix stick to paint on the colors.
I used the paints in mini mister and tried to achieve a Technique Junkies background usually made with Glimmer Mist. I have to say that the paint needs to be thicker for the technique- but really leaves a very shimmery background! I will try again with a little more pain or a little less water.  The background paper is  Abysse which I have had for ages and finally decided to just do it and cut into it….and it is delightful IRL!
See all of the DT samples in one place HERE on the CI blog.
Here is the Creative Inspirations website.

This is so cool, Shelly! I love the hook and worm, and I bet the glimmer is beautiful in person! I'm never happy with how they photograph.

I love it Shelly!! I actually was also working with this image, but didn't like how it was turning out, so I am back to the drawing board with it. Love the shimmer! I love the added touch of the hook and worm!! Great job!
