I love this sentiment and crafty images in the Crafting Forever stamp set, and thought it would be perfect with the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Color Theory Suite (and yes it is called Color Theory as SU is an American company). I had fun making these, so made a bunch of these cards to send crafty friends around the world!
The DSP is double sided with strips of colour, or solid ombre on one side and different sizes of crackle on the other. I am sure that we can all see those DIY paint chips/strips that you can get as samples on the paper I have used here! However I have also used some of the crackle design to stamp the paint pots onto and paper pieced them onto the full image, adding a little colour from the markers with a blender pen.
I really like the colour range here in this suite - Berry Burst, Crushed Curry, Dapper Denim, Old Olive - and strangely enough even though pink is normally my go to colour for crafting and I do not particularly like yellow (probably because it is a colour I cannot wear), my favourite in these cards are the yellow ones! Don't ask me why, as I simply do not know! LOL!
