Creative Inspiration Paints-- inspired by:Anything goes (week two)

CLICK HERE for the DL.ART Thankful Thursday  #110 Splash challenge ending June 7, 2013

CLICK HERE for the  DL.ART Thankful Thursday May Linky  challenge Anything goes ending May 31,


This is week Two  of:

Here's some inspiration:

I started out with white tags and white ribbon

I painted all four tags varying colors of the sapphire and the buttercup ,
while they were drying, I painted  half the ribbon buttercup and the other half Sapphire

I embossed the black checker board stamped image in black on all the tags, to give them the consistency of a set.  For the Large image I embossed them with white, For the Alice tag I embossed her first and then painted over her. The effect is different than the others.

The embossing powder is super fine  and gives a very detailed image. The stamps I used were very detailed and the images came out beautifully.
I used Crafty Secrets "Greetings from Wonderland" and Stampendous " Wonderland."
The tag die is from PTI
the ribbon is from my stash.

A little tip:
I found that coffee filters work really well for many things, but especially for putting embossing powder  on small areas, I use two per color and the when you are done, you just either throw them away or make flowers out of them. I had so much fun with this project can you tell?
Art and crafting should be fun .

I hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with this week's challenge!!
Remember you do not need to use CI Paints on your projects but if you have them we would LOVE to see how you used them!!
As always thanks for stopping by and
have a great and blessed week!
