CI Paint Inspired By Your Favorite Tutorial

This week, at Creative Inspirations Paint, we are being inspired by tutorials.  Here, at CI Paint, you will find at least 68 creative tutorials! As Kendra says:

Our very own, Kassi, posts tutorials every Saturday to inspire us all!  So I thought this would be a great challenge!  Has she or another DT member inspired you by a tutorial they've shared and you've been itching to try it?  Haven't gotten the time, well now is that time! (Or inspired by another tutorial you've seen somewhere...or have one to share?)  We'd love to see what tutorials have inspired you.

I have always loved the faux silk technique.  On this card, I painted the tissue paper with CI Paint 'Pink Highlights' and then used 'Tutu Pink' to add some swirls.  Totally love the beautiful, sparkly results!

This adorable free image is from Kelley Kids Challenges .  She was so fun to color with my Prismacolor pencils and then I added some 'Pink Highlights' and 'Mint Green'.  The flowers also received a coat of 'Pink Highlights' and the chipboard flowers are covered in Dazzling Diamonds.  The little vintage buttons are some I found recently in a thrift shop.

The color scheme came from Color Create Challenge.  My favorite colors!  How could I not enter,LOL?!

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
