City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 374 ~ Paint Chip Inspired

When we were renovating our bathroom, I make numerous trip to Home Depot, and I "collected" a few paint chips, after the bathroom is done, I thought, what can I do with these paint chips, oh yes, make something, LOL!


I used the paint chips to make a few cover page for my little organizer...


but I wasn't too happy with these, so I came up with another card....


hmm..... now I am happy!


the flowers is a stamp set from Studio Katia, and leaves die cut is Papertrey Ink.


Come play along with us at....

I love both of these projects and your flower card is really beautiful - the paint ship gives a wonderful ombre effect.

Omword, Kirsty!! What a stunning card, and such a fabulous way to re-use those paint chips! Absolutely love the ombre look the paint chips add to the design, and then the black and white images with the elegant vellum leaves is such a fabulous contrast. The whole design just POPS!
