Faux Paint Chip

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Yesterday was my Techie class and one of the techniques they learned was the Faux Paint Chip technique.

This is a pretty simple technique and can be done in many different color combinations. I chose to use Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, and Not Quite Navy. You want to choose 3 or 4 pieces of card stock in the same color just varying the shades. Mount these to a strip of White card stock that is cut 1/4″ longer but the same height as your strips. Attach your cut pieces to the White card stock leaving an 1/8″ between each piece. Stamp and emboss your image over the top of the strips. You can mount this piece to an additional coordinating card stock color if desired.

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and will give this technique a try.
