Good Morning Crafty Friends,

How are you all doing?  
Do you have any plans to craft this weekend?

I will be colouring the next lesson for Ink Lily and will be doing some one stroke painting roses.
The new USB with Mel Heaton teaching the Scan and Cut has arrived and I will be watching and playing on Sunday.

Today's card is made for the Paint Chip Challenge, the leader is my very good friend NanaConnie.
There is a Must do list and we have an additional 3 items from the Can Do items.

This month they are as follows:

Must Do
1. Monochromatic
2. Make sentiment the focus, it can be die cut, stamped(digi or rubber) typed/computer font or hand written.
3. Use Paint Chips, I have been unable to get these so created my own.
4. Use patterned paper in the background.

Can do items are:

Use a Die Cut
Use your Favourite Colour
Use Summer Friuts

Here is my samples

I have used the following

Paint Chip scraps in Teal (my second favourite colour)
Thanks sentiment Die Cut
Background paper from stash with die cut leaves
Used scraps of paint chip to punch out dragonflies and coloured flowers to match.
