Always Paisley...

Yes, it THAT STAMP again... this was such a quick card to make! All I did was ink up Paisley in Cool Caribbean, and stamp off once onto scrap, and then I used my Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery marker to colour a section in the corner, and then "huffed" to re-moisten the ink, and stamped onto Whisper White. The word "Always" is from the discontinued Sell-a-Bration set Happy Harmony, and there's that Pewter Hodgepodge I told you I needed, and some Celery Grosgrain ribbon.
Sometimes I make a card and have a "yes" moment afterwards, where I've managed to capture what's in my head, and it looks even better in real life (these are balanced by "no" moments, which you don't often get to see on here!wink). It's always interesting to see whether my "yes" cards say "yes" to other people...let me know what you think! biggrin

  1. Great card Marelle, clever use of one stamp. The paisley stamp has been on my wisn list for a little while but now it seems to be creeping closer to the top since I've been seeing more and more creations with it.

  2. "YYYEEEESSSSSS". My wish list just gets bigger every time I visit your blog. Whenever I get a bit disheartened, I visit here and then I feel inspired again. I CAN do this. Thanks Marelle.

  4. It says Yes to me too Marelle. When I first looked at it - I thought wow - that must have taken ages to cut out all those little flowers - very clever using markers to highlight some images. Have to try that one. Great job as always!
