Faux Paint Chip Strip

Today was going to be a stamping day - a fun, nothing-else-priority kind of stamping day! And then... where did the time go?? Not only did I not get any stamping done, I didn't get much of anything else done either!!

So anyway, I decided to show you one more card that we made in class yesterday. I was inspired by Leann Greff, who used strips of cardstock and stamped a detailed image over them. But she used three different colors of cardstock. So when I saw hers, I thought I could put varying shades of one color and make it look like a paint chip strip. You know, like the ones people use from Lowes or Home Depot.

So I put together four 1 1/4" x 3" strips in Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Melon Mambo to create a pink paint chip strip! Then we layered it on black and stamped it with the Fabulous Florets stamps.

It was fun to stamp outline images and not have to color them in!

I think this card gave a Hawaii kind of vibe, what do ya think?

Love this card: the colors and the stamps over them. Very pretty!
