Make a Wish, They Do Come True - Creative Inspiration Paint

This fortnights card, was created for a very special friend, about to embark on the venture of a lifetime, with moving to USA to broaden her areas of study.  I wanted to make a card which is my interpretation of dreams coming true for her - an of course a splatter and coat of Creative Inspiration Paints was a 'must'.  

The beautiful Prima Marketing 'Fairy Belle' 6' X 6" pad was used to create this card, and every component was covered in a generous coat of Creative Inspiration Paint. The ballerina fairy, and butterflies were painted with Fairy Dust - seemed most appropriate and left the most glorious touch to the image/s. 'Mellow Yellow' was applied to the 'yellow' butterfly on the right.
The base of the card was created using the Cheery Lynn Designs, French Flair Classic Series, and then topped with the Mini Pearl French Flair.  Also, the foliage (Dimensional Leaves and Olive Branches) were painted with several coats of 'Green Olive' Paint, as well as, 'Evergreen' to create a depth of shadow on one edge.

Each of the flowers was touched with 'Gold', just highlighting each of the petals.
The Imaginarium Designs Chipboard - 3" X 2" Swirly Frame (IDFR0004) was painted using Antique Gold, in a haphazard manner, leaving patches with no paint.  A light sponge of 'Gold' Creative Inspirations Paint was applied over the entire frame leaving a gorgeous, two-toned -gold, with amazing shimmer.

The challenge theme on the Creative Inspirations Blog is Mother's Day this week, and can be found 'Here'. Each month, one person will win 5 jars of paint in the colors of their choice. There is a top 3 each week, and a winner chosen randomly from all those who have participated that month, so make sure to join in on our challenges each week!
