Flasher needs help!

Post by Flasher » Sat Mar 28, 2020 12:05 pm

Gee, there's a loaded statement.  :greenwinkb:

In the very near future, I'm going to be working on a layout that features Ruffles potato chips.  (I've been trying to do this layout for 10 years -- I may have even posted this help question before!)  I plan on making paper potato chips to use as accents on my layout.  My challenge for you?  Please show me or provide me with suggestions as to what you think the best color cardstock will be for this project.  You'd think finding potato chip colored paper would be easy.  Humph.  :greenwinkb:
I don't know what my spirit animal is, but I'm pretty sure it has rabies.

This is Bazzill's french vanilla cardstock. You could run it thru a crimper after you cut into chip shapes and distress the edges with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.

Just an idea..... I Always have paper warp  with watercolor, maybe make some ovals of plain white cardstock and paint  with a watery light tan and let it dry??

I vote for Bazzill French Vanilla or Chiffon.  Die cut with an oval die and definitely a crimper!!
