Creative Inspirations Paint & Helmar - With Love Card

This fortnight's project has been created using a lovely paper range from Kaisercraft, and enhanced fully using the beautiful paints by Creative Inspirations Paint.

Each element within the card has been coloured using a variety of paint colours.  Paint was applied from a very light wash, to a more heavy wash.  Several colours were applied together, especially for the leaves (Gold, Sage, and Green Olive) to enhance the leaves further. 

A list of all colours can be found in my supplies list.
...and of course I had to use my very favourite 'Resplendence' Angel Dust, which really adds such a beautiful, unique finishing touch to a project.  I applied with a brush, a light application of Helmar Gemstone Glue to where I wanted the sparkle, and then sprinkled the 'Angel Dust' over the card.
I took the photographs on different angles to try and attempt to capture the beautiful shimmer of the Creative Inspirations Paint and Angel Dust. 

I'm not the best 'stamper' and 'colourer' (is that even a word lol).... so I wanted to showcase the use of these amazing paints as a way to enhance general cards, made from a paper-set.

Happy creating/painting...and do not forget to enter the challenge over on the Creative Inspirations Paint Blog, which can be found 'HERE', to be in for a chance to win some fabulous paints!
