Paint Isn't Just for Walls!

I love using found items (recycled things, etc.) in my cardmaking. On these cards, I used paint chips (samples) to create the Christmas trees.




Aren't they fun?

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black

Cardstock: White and Black (vendor unknown)

Designer Paper: Heidi Grace Designs (Let It Snow Circle Words) and Paper Studio (both kinds of word paper)

Embellishments: Rhinestones from Michael's
