It's Summertime! and Truffles

Luv this image from Inkadinkado, it just speaks to you! Our challenge this week is Summer. I used the FAB Creative Inspirations Paint to first make a background by dabbing some paints on my craft sheet and smooshing in my cs. Then I painted the image . IRL the image just beams with sunshine....or sparkle from the paints.

Check out the cute little Oshgosh by Gosh buttons I found in my stash! I used the largest Nestie from the set to cut out the image, so I turned that nestie over, traced around it on black paper and cut out my black layer by hand! Worked like a charm.

Exciting News and some Truffles .....visit the CIDT Blog , become a Follower and leave a comment telling us what your favorite CI colors are, and you then have a chance to win 5 jars of this FAB paint. You have until July 5th to enter, so don't forget!


These are the colors I used this week: Burnt Clay, Tan, Sunshine,Turquoise, Spring Green, Sky Blue and Pumpkin.

Hi Gerrie~

You chose such a great image to represent summer! I love the colors in it! That dab of C.I. in the top right corner looks wonderful, and really can help me feel the "heat" at the beach!

I just visited Creative Inspirations.

Have a wonderful summer time weekend!
