Have a Magical Day


This card looks SO very pretty in real like and yet the picture looks so plain and just blah! But, trust me, it SHIMMERS AND SHINES! A week or so ago I won some blog candy and part of it was Creative Inspirations paint. Oh my goodness! That stuff is wonderful. If you haven't already tried it, do so. You can find their web site here. This was my first card using the paint and I can already see so many possibilities.

I received four little bottles of paint and I actually used some of all four of them on this card - Tutu Pink, Silver Frost, Fairy Dust, and Amethyst. The image and sentiment are from Pony Party (SU). This is a nice little image and you can add the horn, a hat, butterfly, etc.....I stamped it once and then stamped the wing again and popped it up after using some Fairy Dust paint and then glitter (the bottom wing only has the Fairy Dust on it). On the tail and mane I used Amethyst and Tutu Pink and on the hoofs and horn I used Silver Frost. The flowers were just some "plain Jane" white paper flowers - those I painted with the Tutu Pink. On the smaller flower I used Fairy Dust.

My next task will be to figure out how to get a picture to do this paint justice. It's just too pretty.

The sketch I used is from Tuesday Morning Sketches, the theme "Magical" from Crafty Creations Challenge, and for Aly's Sunday Challenge (to feature an animal).

Thanks for stopping by...................

What a sweet card and wouldn't it just tickled a little girl!!! I get much better results with my pictures if I take them outside and lay them on a piece of black paper.

Lovely card, great idea to "pop" the wing. It adds so much dimension.l

Carrie said...

You did a wonderful job with the paints. Love the dimension to this card, how the wings overlap the sentiment. Very cute.
