Kitties In A Basket

Hello, welcome to my CIP post today-That stands for Creative Inspirations Paint.
I have created a little something different for me
Now I know I am not a painter but I attempted to do some backgrounds on my cards today.
These adorable Basket of kittens are from  True's Gift's From the Heart...True designed them just for me I think! lol
I used Tanzanite and Fairy Dust CIP Paint for the sky. A mixture of Sage,Evergreen, and Green olive CIP Paint for the grass.
Then I punched the tree borders from assorted card stock and painted them with the three Green CIP paints to blend it all together.
I pulled a couple pieces of designer paper from my scraps to add some other colors.
The Kittens were printed as they were, cut and pop dotted to the card.
I used a sheer ribbon to add a bow.
I did add a little stickles to the kittens eyes's.
I am pretty pleased with my attempt to paint a card.
What says you?
