Play Date Cafe Challenge # 43

This week the colors are some of my all time fav's and Creative Inspirations is sponsoring PDCC this week with a wonderful color challenge.  Stop by the PDCC Blog for all the details on how you can enter to win 12 paints of your choice from Creative Inspirations Paint. Here's the "color story" for the PDCC, it fits in wonderfully with the "Summer" challenge issued to Team A at the Creative Inspirations Blog this week.


 
This image from LIWP worked out perfect for the colors this week.  I used my "finger" tool and put some of each color on my craft sheet and then spritzed with water, dabbing my cs into the paints to create a unique bg.  Then I colored the image with Evergreen, Turquoise, Mint and Mocha Latte paints as needed.  The shimmer from the paints is just beautiful!   I used the Level Up tech from TJ on 2 of the Junks for dimension.

Don't forget that Creative Inspirations Paint has released some wonderful Limited Edition Paints  available for purchase as a "set" for $8.00 or individually for $2.25 each (plus shipping).  hugz.....
