Creative Inspirations is an iridescent water based paint that adds brilliance and sparkle to any of your creations. They are easy to use -- just shake, open, and play! There are 55 vivid colors to choose from and they dry quickly on most surfaces including vellum and acetate.Today we are introducing four new colors to the Creative Inspiration line for a limited time. The new colors -- IVORY, BEIGE, BURGUNDY, and DENIM -- are available now and will be available through December 31, 2010. And there is a special. For the limited colors, if you buy them as a set of four, the cost is only $8.00 plus shipping. Individually the jars will be the normal price of $2.25.

My card utilizes the paints in a few different ways. First note the beautiful DENIM skirt, the lovely IVORY blouse, the cool BEIGE pallette, and the woman on the painting in BURGUNDY Aren't these temporary new colors wonderful! The image was painted totally with Creative Inspirations paint. The background was created using a sea sponge to pounce on paint. A fun embellishment is the lace which was highlighted with the ivory paint. The whole card has a wonderful shimmer. easel.

Here is my clue for you. U

Next you should head over to Ashley's blog for your next clue. Good luck and happy, shimmery creating!
