My first scrapling.

Scraplings are a mini type card that is 1 1/2" wide and 4 1/4" long, or
the other way around. They are made with paint chips or sample paint strips from local paint retailers. Since I keep forgetting to pick some up while in the neighborhood, and the nearest place for me to get these is over 10 miles away. I'm not crazy about the little white line between the colors, so I made my own. When the sweat from my water bottle fell onto my chip I just moaned, and put it aside. When I saw what it looked like when it dried, I added a few more drips and kinda manipulated them, very cool. LOL Out came one of my dragonfly stamps and a charm to finish it up. Don't ya just love it when an OOPS! becomes just what ya were looking for? Now onto getting 4 done for the Gingersnap challenge.

  2. Love it! I wish I had time for this swap but just don't. I'm in a 27x27 alphabet book swap right now so I've got a lot of pages to make.

  3. This is lovely, the colours are gorgeous and that stamp is a perfect choice. I just picked up some paint chips from the DIY store today. So they are top of my To DO list.
