Wednesday Stamper - Paisley

Here is my entry for this week's Wednesday Stamper Paisley theme. I had stained a piece of card with coffee and used a section of it for the Birds tag in the post below. Having enough left to cut into a 4x4 I decided to use this paisley stamp from a free Papermania pack of stamps that I got as a subscription gift. I thought at first that the stamp set would be too "cute" but teamed with natural colours & my favourite image (I call her gypsy) I think they look quite grown up. I watercoloured the images with a selection of Adirondack dye ink pads. I used my favourite Colourbox Fluid Chalk Ink pad , Dark Brown to ink over some sequin waste to add a bit of contrast.

Just lovely....that is a very special image and your composition suits her perfectly.

Don't you just love Colorbox's fluid chalk ink?

Lovely Paula, that little gypsy girl is so nice!! Where did you find her?
And I actually like the fortnight themes too, had it done early this time, but sometimes I can't keep up with the weekly themes!
