Gramophone Tag

I  finally have some time to play with a few tags.  I used Ranger Paint Daubers in aqua and green daubed onto a craft mat then lightly spritzed with a mister.  Then I ran the tag through the paint on the mat.  After drying I sprayed perfect pearls mister.

Anniversary Card - Embossed Paint Chips

I love embossing paint chips to use as background for cards.  I made this card for our anniversary last year.

A Behr paint chip and Darice embossing folder make the yellow background.   I always lightly sand my paint chips after I have embossed them; the paint sands beautifully exposing the design.  I used garden burlap from Lowes cut to size behind the paint chip and jute ribbon from Creative Bag for the front.  The brown roses and yellow resin rose were also from Creative Bag.    I used gold glitter embossing powder with the Happy Anniversary rubber stamp.
