Denim colored paisleys card

Wild, cosmic colors and pattern are what I think of when I see a paisley. Do you remember your wild paisley days, Mom? I loved seeing these vivid designs back in the day and am happy to see the paisley has made a come back. But did it really ever go away?

For this challenge card, I started out with a folded cardbase of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, and made my own patterned paper. I used a variety of colors that would compliment one another with the “denim and t-shirt” look. Some of the tones are a second generation of ink, in order to lend a variery of color shades around the paper.


For the larger stamped images, I used the “rock & roll” technique of using a light ink shade and “rolling” the edge of the stamp onto a darker ink pad. This will allow more than one ink to sit on the stamp. It does not always lend the look I desire but it is always interesting 😉

  1. Ooh la la! I love your color choices for this card! You’re right-I usually think of Paisley being done in some psychedelic color scheme with some brown thrown in for good measure… The Dapper Denim and Smoky Slate were a perfect choice for your beautiful card! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous creation with is over at What Will You Stamp this week!

    • Thanks, Maria! Not that I wouldn’t want to see psychedelic colored paisleys make a come back, LOL! Thanks for stopping by 🙂 -Jenny
