It's a BIG Fish...




I got to play a bit today with my Creative Inspirations Paints, the challenge this week is painting on acetate or acyrillic. This also fit the Transparency challenge at Gingersnap! I stamped this fabulous Fred B. Mullet image, BG-015-R, Big Pompano, on one side of my acetate in black stazon, and then flipped the piece over and painted or "dabbed in" with several different colors of CI , finding that I liked the darker colors the best. There is no right or wrong with these FAB paints, just use them! I actually multi layered color on top of color until I got the affect I was looking for. Try it, you'll luv these paints.



After they dried, I lightly brushed on some white craft paint over the painted side of the image, and cleaned up the edges with a qtip. While that was drying, I searched out some blue papers, and ran the lighter blue thru my Sizzix Tiger embossing folder, which to me looks like waves. Then I took a cosmetic sponge and dabbed some Sea Foam paint on my craft sheet and swiped it across the waves for extra shimmer. This piece is actually 8- 1/2 x 3- 3/4.


The colors I used today are red. white, Sapphire, Turquoise, Sea Foam, Bright Yellow, Canary, Sage and Evergreen!
