Creative Inspirations Paint - No Ugly Ducklings Here

***Please scroll down for my Play Date Cafe Color Challenge Post

Thanks for stopping in today for the Creative Inspirations Paint Challenge.  This week Marti issued the team a  Beach Themed Color Challenge using the wonderful CI Paints.  That was pretty easy, since there are so many wonderful colors of this shimmery paint!  ETA - see the Creative Inspirations Blog for some Blog Truffles!

I also went with "water themed" images.  All stamps used are from the set Our Side of the Pond from Marks Finest Papers.  The images are stamped in Black Archival on White card stock, masking the Swan to add the cattails.  Then using an H20 Brush I painted the images with the following Creative Inspirations Paints in  Fairy Dust, Buttercup, Sky Blue, Green Olive and Tan.  The Background was created using a Texture Fades Folder and Black Magic card stock from Core-dinations.  Sanding the embossed area with a Sanding Block to have the core color show through.

Details:
Stamps  - Marks Finest Papers
Ink - Black Archival
Card Stock - Sky Blue, White, Black, Core-dinations Black Magic
Other - Creative Inspirations Paints, H20 Brush, Sanding Block (DuraSand), Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Big Shot, Texture Fades Embossing Folder

Be sure to stop by the Design Team Blog to see what the other Designers created this week.  Team B will be posting their Beach Themed creations next week.
