"Fairy" Happy

I am very happy with the way this card turned out, especially since I had so much fun making it.  Today I got some Creative Inspirations Paint and it didn't take long to get started playing with them.  Everything yellow on the card is actually painted, but sadly you can't see the amazing shimmer.  The verdict?  I want them all!  They are just thin enough to be fast drying, and thick enough that I didn't need more than a coat for the flowers or the image!  I also worked completely out of the lid so a little really goes a long way.  I am so in love with these!!!  Can't wait to try the other colors I have and will probably be buying more.

Here's a link since I know you want to go buy some now:

P.S.  I was not asked to write this post, and I'm in no way affiliated with CI, I just love the paints.

Other goodies I used on my card:

Digi:  Bugaboo Stamps - Ava Fairy Special
Papers:  Live Designs Naturally Free Digital Paper Pack; Hammermill CS; American Crafts
Flowers from local craft store
Lace and Pearls are both by Recollections
