Almost Paisley

This is my card for the first Inklings Cyberstamp challenge. Lin Mei kicked off the night with a colour challenge, using some shoes as inspiration. My first response used Fine Lace as the background stamp, because on this occasion I was consciously inspired by the photo with it's lacey shoes. I decided that it wasn't really the look I was after, so I remade the card using Paisley for the background... If only those shoes were Paisley I think I'd be hunting them down (although what I would wear them with I have no idea!)! If you click on the image of my card to view it larger you will be able to just make out that the sentiment has been shadowed with Almost Amethyst. Another little trick I used was to SNAIL the two ribbons together so they were easier to control. And I have to say I love using Basic Black when I need a black but don't need to watercolour, much easier to clean (and it smells better too).
