CI holiday hop...

Welcome to Creative Inspirations Paint Holiday Blog Hop!

If you came here from Gini's blog, then you're in the right place.  If you just started on my blog, jump on over to the CI blog so you can collect all the clues. You don't want to miss out on any wonderful inspiration (and your chance at a prize)!

 I wanted to really showcase the fabulous shimmer of these paints by keeping my card sweet and simple.
I sponged Ivory CI paint over the whole piece of white cardstock to give it a beautiful shimmer. I love simple it is to get an amazingly elegant look!

One of my favorite ways to use the CI paint is to alter white things. (that way I only have to keep a bunch of white things on hand, instead of trying to buy every color of everything!).  The silk flowers and the ribbon were both originally white, but they became a beautiful bright red when I painted them with Garnet CI paint!  Perfect for the Christmas season!

Check out the amazing shimmer on that background!  

For a little extra texture, I added some larger glitter to the petals of the flowers... However you can still see the beautiful shimmer of the paint behind!

Remember to collect all the letters from each of our blogs for your chance to win the fabulous prize package!  My letter is... E

Ok... your next stop is Kendra!
