Eggs at CI Paints

Today we have a fun challenge at Creative Inspirations Paint.  It's all about the eggs! 

Isn't this the cutest little egg person!  "Paint Me Pretty Chick"  comes from Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs.  I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and then used Creative Inspirations Paint "Green Olive, Sunshine, and Rose Quartz" to give some wonderful shimmer.  I almost always use Glaze Medium with my paints.  When I was finished painting my image I had a little bit of paint left so I turned my brush around and dipped the end in the paint and painted dots on the background.

I used an MS border punch on the pink layer and added a yellow ribbon.  I wish I were a better photographer; this card is much prettier IRL.

The background was sponged with some yellow Studio G chalk ink and then I added some stitching and gems.  I designed the sentiment in PSE, printed it, and colored it with my pencils.

I totally love this flower!  It's one of those felt flowers which I will be making myself when I have a little more time.

Be sure to join us at CIP for a chance to win some of these wonderful shimmery paints for yourself!

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
