Back to the Tags

I'm up to Day 6 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas TagsJeanne's colour-blocked tag caught my eye right away — time to bring out the paint chips! I was also inspired by her choice of one main die cut image, and use of sequins as embellishments. Here's mine: 

Jeanne used pinks and gold; I chose blues and silver. I didn't really have a suitable die cut image to use, so decided to go with this image/sentiment instead. See the little stars that get cut out of the jingle bell? I VERY briefly thought to use them as well as sequins. I quickly decided they were a little too small for my patience level at that moment. 
Paint chips and glitter paper... it's all good! :D

Supplies: white cardstock, American Crafts silver glitter paper, paint chip, Lil' Inkers Jingle Joy & Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #2 dies, Darice sequins, silver elastic cord, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

You do paint chips well. I always suk with them. And if you use a pick-up-stick thingy, those tiny stars are no problem. I'll let it go, this time ... :P

Brilliant idea using paint chips! Love the way you used this soft blue one with the silver. I think the middle color is the color of my craft room. Hmmm.
