Paint Chip Tag

Hello Blog Friends ~
I received my new Layered Tree die from SSS yesterday, and can't seem to put it down! In fact, at one point, I thought about creating an ombre effect and remembered that I have several paint chips from Home Depot, and they would be perfect for this tree...and I could enter my tag into Virginia Lu's Challenge  ~ Card Inspiration with Paint Chips!


I used 2 paint chips in graduated colors/shades of pink and burgundy, then added the star, sentiment and accents. I think it's really fun to use paint chips on a card or tag, and I'm really impressed with the quality! 

Virginia's challenge is running until January 31st, so if you're interested, please go check out her Blog and join in the fun!

Stamps: Hero Arts - Holiday Sayings
