Wow Chris. I am at a loss for words. I am just amazed at how neatly and wonderfully you painted this card. I love Creative Inspiration Paints. They are wonderful. I need some practice with them, however.

Do you find it easier to emboss first, when using these paints? Or do you stamp the image in a certain ink so the colors don't run? I would really benefit from your knowledge on this.

This card is more than stunning!
Thank you for sharing it with us.

Happy Birthday (early) to your son...Dave's bday is the day after Valentine's Day! I'm sure you will all be having a special day for your son.

He IS Able,
Traci S.
