Creative Inspirations Paint- Color Challenge!

It's April 1st but there's not joke on my blog today! It's is, however, my first "official post" for Creative Inspirations Paints. I've been playing with these paints for the last few weeks and I am in LOVE with them! The colors are so rich (which I have not found with other paints I've tried) and the coverage is awesome! And the shimmer, OH the shimmer! I love it so much!!

The first challenge that we were given is a color challenge. We were to use lavender, yellow, and green. I also used Card Patterns Sketch 57 for this card. The stamp I used is from Hero Arts. The patterned paper is SU. I also used two different embossing folders for this card.

Onto the paint. I used Royal Purple for the flower and then to make it softer, I painted Winter Frost on top of it. I didn't even need to wait between layers. The paint dries pretty quick and I did want them to blend a little. For the center of my flower, I used Sunshine. And then I took a fine brush and added some Evergreen to the flower. You can see how well the paint layers.

And FINALLY, I was able to get a really good picture of the shimmer. This paint is SO pretty! You should ALL buy it so you can see how pretty it is in person! This was taken with no flash, in afternoon sun.

Alright, check out the Creative Inspirations Paints BLOG and see what all the other girls did too! Have a great Thursday everyone!
