Using Paint Chips

This month over on our NZ Craftycardmakers site, the challenge set by Carol was to use Paint Chips to make our project.  I had disposed of any that I had so a quick trip to Bunnings to get some was in order.  I love the Dulux paint chips - they have three different shades of the same colour on each card. Plus they are named after NZ places.   I went online to Pinterest to get some ideas and here's what I made,

I didn't have a 3/4" punch so used my 1" one and used the Corner Chomper at 1/2" to round the opposite corners on each one.    Maxine, who I sent this one to, has let me know it's arrived.

I'm off to a walking weekend this weekend... I'm doing two activities - Saturday we are trying Stand Up Paddle boarding followed by a walk through the sand dunes.  And on Sunday we are doing a Wine tour... some walking between a couple of the vineyards and some busing as well.

Off to do some colouring... I'm way behind in Feb's class and March's class is out tonight! 

Thanks for stopping by.
