Paisley Pair

I have had a very productive day in the craft room and used two new stamp sets into the bargain!

Being the aging hippy that I am, I was totally drawn to the two paisley sets SU has for offer.  Paisley Petals and Spiced Paisley.

First off is the soft pastel one As soon as I saw the challenge colours at Colour Q I knew that they would work for the paisleys.  I've also used the sketch at Card Patterns to make my card, only using three rather than 4 featured items.


Card Patterns: Sketch # 147

Colour Q: #118  Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz, Cameo Coral, Cool Carribean, had to substutite there and went with Marina Mist.

On a britghter note.... the colour challenge over at CR84FN had me reaching for my copic markers and some bright paisly fun!

I've used the Paisley Petals set here and Y17, B12 and YR07, what a fabulous combination they made for the paisly background I created.  No blending here, just back to grade 1 colouring and trying to stay inside the lines!

CR84FN:  Colour challenge Med Blue, Orange and Yellow.

Thanks for stopping by.
