KW Colour Inspiration #13

Kristina Werner took me by surprise by posting a colour challenge yesterday afternoon - I didn't think we'd have another one till Friday at the earliest! But I no complain wink. One look at the inspiration photo and all I could think of was Paisley... by dinner time my desk was covered in all these bits of stamped Paisley and I had a million ideas going through my head. I eventually settled on this one, though I may get time to work on one of my other ideas... we'll see! If you go to the website where the bedding came from you'll see there is a video you can watch. It was from that, and the mention of the French, that I also decided I had to use Carte Postale some way. I decided to base my design on the quilt cover and had planned on stamping a Wasabi sentiment in the bottom right corner, but decided I like it better with no words at all.

Stamp Sets: Paisley, Carte Postale
Inks: Purely Pomegranate, River Rock

Hi Carol,
This is REALLY nice. I love the Paisley stamp. I was thinking of using it too for this challenge but it belongs to my mum and I couldn't get out of the house to go borrow it! Oh well.
