Paisley Butterflies

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.
