CASology #84 (Paint), WPlus9 Birthday Week 4 (Stretch It)

Still haven’t found that pause button, which I could have done with once I realised how near to closing time it was at a few challenges.  So, I won’t hang around … there are another couple of cards to come … this one is the most pressing …

CASology 84, WP9 Bday 4

I’m playing at CASology, where the Cue Card is Paint … and at WPlus9′s last week of birthday celebrations, where there’s a Stretch It theme … do something that stretches your creativity or takes you outside your comfort zone.  Never used paint chips before so I think that counts!

The paint chips are from our local hardware/DIY store … part of the collection of stuff we have for a bit further along in the renovation.  I sliced and trimmed them to size, and adhered them, one flat and the other two on different sized foam dots.  The WPlus9 sentiment (also sliced … made up of two different ones) was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, the top corner of the card was rounded and I added a scattering of sequins, tucking a couple in to the paint chip layers.  The bottom sequin came like that … handy huh?

I’ll be back in a short while with more!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    Fantastic! I was thinking about using paint chips myself for this challenge but couldn’t work out how to do it. Your idea is brilliant and love all the different shades of yellow, the sentiment matches it perfectly.

    Such a lovely cheerful colour Anita. I love your use of paint chips. Must admit I sometimes get strange looks when I go into B&Q (or similar) and start rifling through their paint chips to get some nice matching colour hues!!! lol

    Brilliant! Love the paint chips and how ‘delightful’ that a wee little sequin came ‘as is’ to fit perfectly into your design. Fabulously cheerful! Hugs~c

    Sunny, happy, vibrant, clever, creative, and such an brilliant idea! I love how you tucked the sequins between the chips…and yes, the sawed off little critter was perfect for the bottom row! Calling it again, another winner!
