Creative Inspiration Color Challenge

Yay! It's my first post for the Creative Inspiration Design Team. I previously showed you my Think Spring card that I made using creative inspirations paints -- if you missed it, check it out HERE!

Here's my latest project using CI Paints! BTW --they are sooo incredible! They are soo easy to use and have such AMAZING color!! You definitely have to add these to your must have list!


I cut my flower out of velum on my cricut. There are 8 layers! They I painted it with Sunshine and Green Olive CI Paints. Isn't it amazing how well the paints colored the velum?!! I embossed the card with Cuttlebugs D'Vine Swirls embossing folder and then painted Lavender on the embossing. I dipped my paintbrush into water and then into the paint to get a more subtle effect.

Very pretty Stephanie.
Love the flower and the shimmer. Can you tell me if it is a cricut cut and if it is what cartridge is it on?
