I had so much fun with this sketch, I created TWO cards. The first card I created uses The Creative Inspirations Paint! Creative Inspirations Paint is an iridescent water based paint that will add brilliance and sparkle to any of your creations. They are so easy to use just shake, open, and play! There are 55 vivid colors to choose from and they dry quickly on most surfaces including vellum and acetate.
Creative Inspiration Paints have a NEW Challenge that they host on Sundays! This week's Challenge is to use ANY Bedtime Story as your inspiration. The first card uses the
"Rudolph the Red-nose Reindeer" and the second card uses "Jack Be Quick." We would LOVE it if you played along too!
This ADORABLE reindeer set is a stamp that is newly available at I Brake For Stamps! This stamp is from Embossing Arts and is called Holiday Squares. When you order this stamp set, you receive FOUR adorable images to create your winter and Christmas cards. I even used a BRAND NEW stamp, that will be available soon, but the ink is SO faint that you can barely see it... sooooo I will make ANOTHER card that uses the background and share it with you in a day or so! I used my trusty Aqua painter brush, Creative Inspiration Paints, Dew Drops, Organdy Ribbon and papers from Basic Grey, along with Navy and White card stock and this project is complete!
I used the SHIMMERY Creative Inspiration Paints to paint with. I grabbed my Aqua Painter and Denim paint for the back ground of the stamped image. I painted the antlers with the Tan paint. I used the YUMMY Chocolate paint for the reindeer and Garnet for his cute little nose! The Raw Sienna paint was perfect for the stars and I used the Tutu Pink for the inside of his ears.
My second card uses the BEAUTIFUL Vintage candle stamp set available at I Brake For Stamps. This stamp is available individually or as a set called Vintage Christmas.
These paints have just the right amount of sparkle to them and are SO easy to use! I started out by grabbing my water color paint brush and Plum and painted the candle. The flame portion I painted with the Canary, Garnet, Mellow Yellow and Pumpkin and just a touch of plum in the center of the flame. I used Antique Gold and Gold for the candle holder. The leaves were painted with Emerald and the berries were painted withGarnet and Burgundy for some shading.
