Painting the Town Red (or is it Rose Pink?)

Some months ago Stampers’ Sampler set a challenge to use paint chip samples. As my friends know, it’s never a chore for me to visit a particular D.I.Y. store! Fast-forward – I receive my copy of Sampler in the mail and there is my card. I am so delighted.

As there are rules prohibiting me from showing that particular card I have taken up the challenge once more. Here is the card I made

This new stamp from Crafty Individuals was perfect as the name on the paint chip sample is Gypsy Bloom. I painted a piece of white card with paint prior to stamping the gypsy girl. This created a distressed image which was perfect. I also used emulsion paint to stamp the background onto the cardbase. It was then a matter of adding various elements.

Here’s a closer peek

    I’m so glad you’ve re-created your card Lynne as I was wanting to see what you’d had published. You must be chuffed to bits, x

    Looks great, Lynne but I bet the original was so much nicer 🙂 I really am over the moon for you!
