Second Pumpkin Card

Another pumpkin card using the same pumpkin stamp as the first one I posted today but I stamped it on a paint chip card from the hardware store. The paint department has great inspiration for colors and combos to use. Have you ever used paint chips in card making?  If you have ever collected some of these when selecting colors for painting projects, save them to use in card making. Was just playing around to see how I could re use some paint swatches I picked up the other day....this one is Glidden's Fresh Tangerine. When I stamped it, the ink would not dry so I added some gold EP and heated it to get this look. Then added some coloring with Copics which did dry very quickly. Cut out the pumpkins and made this simple card.

Ink: Versamark
Copics: YR 07,14,18

Maybe they will save for you.
