One of my favourite sets from this years Summer Mini was Spiced Paisley. With a lot of different elements I knew this set would be a lot of fun to play with.
For this card I went back to one of my favourite techniques: direct
to rubber; one of my favourite colour combinations: purple and aqua;
and a new favourite technique: sponging with shimmer paint. Having this
set in clear mount made it so easy to create the background. I arranged
the largest droplet-shaped stamp and the smallest circular stamp on the
same large acrylic block so they would both stamp at the same time and
save having to space things a little. One other little trick I used for
this card was to fill in the scallops on the punched border with the
insides of punched scallops in a different colour.
