Creative Inspirations Paint - I Miss You Card

This month, Creative Inspirations Paint are celebrating their 3rd birthday, and celebrating with 10% off all orders - so do jump on over to the Creative Inspirations Paint website and 'see' all the wonderful products that are available, and stock up!

This week, for Creative Inspirations Paint I have created a card for a dear friend back in South Australia who I miss dearly.  As most know, I am 'new' to colouring in, so please bare with me as I learn the lurks and perks of this wonderful art-form.  Keeping in the lines at times, is a little difficult, with such small areas, but I'm slowly getting better!
All the beautiful shimmer I have tried to capture in the photographs, with the image first being coloured and then Pink Highlights paint added, for instant shine. Resplendence Angel Dust was used on lace areas of the image and also around outer edge of card, looks so pretty and even more so in 'real'.
The leaf beads were also painted firstly with Emerald and then wiped off, so the paint soaked into the veins of the leaves.  Then a wash of Sage was added across the whole leaf.

The challenge is taking place at the moment over on the Creative Inspirations Paint Blog, please call on over for all details to join in the fun and your chance to win a selection of paints!
Have a fantastic week

Awww Sandie, she is adorable and you did a wonderful job! Is that a die or lace around the image, I couldn't tell which it was and I like how you placed the beads around the image. Carole xox
