Creative Inspirations Paints Summer Time!


Hello everyone! It's my team's turn to do the Creative Inspirations Paint challenge for this week! Kassi challenged us to make a card inspired by summer. How fun is that?

Ok, so I used another one of the Verve anniversary sketches for this card. The image is from a new Ippity set called Quotes Ala Happy. I painted the sun with Pumpkin, Buttercup, and used Sunshine for the rays. The light casted off the sun is Autumn Wheat. The sky is Sky Blue. And the scallops under the sun are painted in Blue Ice. I wish I knew how to blend the paint colors in the sky better. The DP is DCWV and the letter stickers are Making Memories.

Here's a picture to show some of the shimmer. Let me tell you, these paints are AMAZING! They are creamy and smooth and just gorgeous. The BEST paints I've ever tried, hands down! And I'm honestly not just saying this because I'm on the DT.

Ok, head over to the Creative Inspirations Paints blog to see what all the designers came up with for this week's theme. Also, don't forget that if you want to be featured on the blog, all you need to do is leave a link with your work featuring the paints on the Inlinkz! Easy Peasy!
