Inspired by: Happy Thanksgiving


This week's challenge is:
Inspired By: Thanksgiving

Hi  Everyone, 
it is my design day over at Creative Inspirations paint  with today's inspiration 
challenge for you:

Here's you  go

I got the image from the silhoutee store and the background paper is from heartfelt creations. The card stock that I painted on is AC white. I love it it is a cool white and all the paints worked beautifully with it

Here is a close up of the leaf

I like adding water and then dropping my colors on the paper the real key is to stop leave the paint alone and then let it do what it does best

I used raw sienna, burnt sienna, and burgundy creative inspirations shimmering paints.  I also used white, metallic copper and platinum Deliquesce. This was stamped and painted on white card stock then  mounted on kraft card stock.

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!
