Today I'm participating in a Cross Promotional Blog Hop between 3GirlJam and Creative Inspirations Paint!
If you've been playing along, you should have come to me from Emily's blog!
And if you just happened to be visiting me, well, Hi! But you'll want to start at the beginning to see all the wonderful projects we've put together for you today.
To start at the beginning:
I've been playing with these paints for a bit now and if you have seen some of my project over the last week or so, you'll see some of the paints in all of them.
My project is a boy project - somewhat difficult for me to do.
Funny thing, tho, my husband looked at it after I said it was a boy card and he said, "Well, it's got a fancy sports car on it...That is something I can see you enjoying!"
I laughed, but it's true. I'm a sucker for a fast and loud car.
Well, a little about the project. My goal is Clean and Simple and BOY-ish. Did it work? And...I have been on a watercolor kick lately, which is grand considering I think the Creative Inspirations Paints work very well with watercoloring.
I used the wonderful 3GirlJam Crinkle Ribbon behind the main image. It's from two different bundles:
I also used a few different paints on the card.
On the embossed yellow card stock behind the main image, I covered it with "Sunshine". It gives it such a nice twinkle!
On the punched stars, I used "Blue Ice". This is going on lots of holiday cards this year!
I also used this same paint over BIG. It really makes the word look like that wonderful metallic blue paint that has the little bitty sparkles in it....you know like some of those hopped up street cars that the "cool" boys drive.
I really enjoyed this. It was a good personal challenge for me, because I'm good with the frills and girly girl stuff, but find it difficult to make a boyish card (that doesn't include brown!)
I hope you liked it too!
So, there's a couple specials going on with this hop that I want you to be aware of (and participate in!).
