Fresh Idea Friday

TGIF!! , It's Friday.. Hello it is Angie here, hope you are all having a great start to your day...I personally can't wait for the weekend to start. I am hoping the weather is beautiful and we can head out somewhere nice to just walk around... I need to get out of the house!!

Today is my first Fresh Idea Friday... can you tell how happy I am!! GLEE

As some of you know I love to make and create things out of the box.. well, this one is just that.. It calls for a little trip to the Home Depot or you local paint store.

Now go to the paint chip section.. and grab some of those wonderful colours.

I love the look of paint on cards and layouts.. but I don't always have the colour I want for an easy way to ink up some of your images.. is to use paint chips.. oh and you can do so much more with them as well.

Here is a card I did just inking up the images and using the paint chip as my coloured cardstock.. It has a glossy look to the paper.. so when you ink it up it looks really cool.

You can get such a large range of any colour.. and talk about free.. because paint chips are all FREE.. well, until the paint company sees what we can make with them..hehe

I did the stars and the red in the car body using paint chips, paper piecing them. I love it.. and the colours are so bright and solid.

{Using the Authentic Man set from the Summer 2010 Release}

I hope it is something that you would give a try.. I have also used these paint chips to punch shapes and diecuts too.. have fun with it!!

Have a Fabulous Friday and great weekend. If you need to find an Ippity Chick for all the new Summer Releases just click below.
