Imagine Paisley

Here for your enjoyment is another paisley card from the unstructured class I took a while back-read about it here. And also read my self constructed class rules here. Feel free to add your own if you are so inclined.

Now this card has a cool wave, don't ya think? If only I had used one of those hot new pink curvy rulers that I have seen in the stores. I finally broke down and bought a generic one in the art department because I was not spending mucho bucks on the same thing only because it's pink-I don't like pink. My grey one works the same. And my waves look better than free hand ever did. But this card was before the ruler.

As you see, I stamped with several stamp images from the set listed previously and used the same inks on white after cutting my wave. Those blue dots-pencil eraser ends dipped in ink. I cut my wave and then lined up another piece of textured Tsumugi paper behind it and just nudged it up a bit to show as a lip over the white and cut the wave for it. This wave was layered on more Tsumugi-just the paper was going a different direction for the base card.

The paisley square was a larger flat square plain image stamp that was covered with ink and then the word and the paisley stamps were kissed off to leave bare spots where I stamped. I then applied the inked image to the white. This white piece was trimmed, added to a green scrap and pop dotted to my card. I will have a couple more to show you later this week using this same paper, stamps and inks.


  1. Ok that is totally cool! I don't have a bendy ruler either...I keep forgetting to get one when I am out! Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Wow that's a beautiful card. Love it!

  3. I just had to post a comment Jan. This card is gorgeous. It's has a timeless feel to it, and I just LOVE the colors. I cannot for the life of me get a nice freehand wave like this. I might have to get a ruler!

  4. What a great card, love it, love your blog - so glad I found it.

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog. Unfortunately we don't have Target in the UK which is a shame cos it sounds like they have the most amazing bargains!

    Love the card you made, the paisley looks amazing, as does the wave you created.


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
