Creative Inspirations Paint - Old St. Nick

If you are here for the Play Date Cafe Challenge, please click here

This week Marti challenged the Creative Inspirations Paint Design Team to create something 3D using the beautiful paints!  I had bought these wooden snowflake ornaments sometime ago with the intenion of altering them.  So this weeks challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to get them altered!

Using an Ink Blending Tool, I applied Creative Inspirations Paint in Winter Frost paint to the wooden snowflake, and let it dry.  These paints really look great on wood!  The wonderful Santa image is from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate.  The image is stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla, I used Ranger Distress Inks and the Burnt Edges Technique to aged the image, then lightly painted it with and H20 Brush and Creative Inspirations Paints in Rustic Red, Winter Frost, Peach and Antique Silver.

Looking for more inspiration with this weeks theme, click the Creative Inspirations Paints logo on my sidebar, Team A is posting this week, Team B will share their cards next week.
