Paint Chips, Day Two

On day one we used the single color paint chip. Today we will look at the paint chip with big bold blocks of color. The variety of colors is endless. Deep dark blues to soft subtle pinks. Which color strikes your fancy? These are very reminiscent of early SEI papers.  I tend to gravitate to bright bold colors. Have you guys noticed that about me yet? When using these chips I cut off the paint description.  You may like to just keep it. Let people know what you are using.

The easiest way to use the multihued chip is just to take a bold stamp such as Upsy Daisy by Stampin' Up! and using what ink?   That's right.... you were listening. Stamp your image with StazOn jet black ink. Remember when using Stazon ink, stamp straight down and pull straight up immediately. Do not stamp down and hold it there, or the stamp will stick on the chip and you will not get a good impression. Assemble your card using a variety of coordinating papers and you have a very quick and easy card. 

Come back tomorrow and check out the chip I have to show you!!
