Creative Inspiration Paints- Inspired by a Snowglobe

 For my Creative Inspirations Paint post today, I had some fun with merging digital images.  I found a tutorial HERE on Bird's Blog.  I used her Snowglobe and merged a darling snowman by Clear Dollar Stamps into it.  (The snowman and the sentiment are free and the snowman comes as a line drawing and pre-colored).  There is also a CDS challenge for December (at the CDS blog)- use three blues on a card plus use a CDS image.

 This card is so shimmer IRL!  I took a mini-mister and Sapphire Creative Inspirations Paint and made a shimmer spray.  I filled up the mini mister ~ 2/3 full with water, then added CI paint in with a paintbrush- swirled it around- when it looked like I wanted it too, I sprayed with the mini-mister over an Impressability snowflake die. 
 I colored the image with Copic markers, then painted over that with CI paint- you can even see Copic blending under the Ci paint!  I used Antique Silver and Onyx for the base of the snowglobe, then colored in the snow and snowman with Fairy Dust CI paint.  (I did not color the hat, carrot or the vest).  I took my aquapainter and dotted on the CI paint to mimic snowflakes. 

  How would you like to win 6 jars of Creative Inspirations Paint- you choose the color?

There are so many things i love about this card - first, the snowglobe concept, which is perfectly executed, and the trims - the ribbon and lace and punched border with bling in the holes, and there are so many layers!
