Paisley Dance (by Magda)

I have always loved this ancient Persian intricate pattern of curved feathers known as "Kashmir Design".  It is very interesting to read on the internet the history of how and where it has been so appreciated and why it is now known also as "Paisley Design".

The beautiful Nature's Paisleys rubber stamp set inspired me to create the page I show you today
Step by Step :

1. Blend different Distress Ink Pad colours
2. Stamp randomly several times  with Versafine Onyx Black  the script of the set
3. Use Distress Inkpad Fired Brick and Distress Inkpad Black Soot separately and together at the
    same time for stamping the different Paisleys
4. Doodle inside the stamped images with white marker or use acrylic paint with a brush.
5. Stamp the sentiment from  Words to Dazzle & Sparkle

You can find all the stamps of  this Birthday Card  in the new Paisley Elephant set and the colours in the Distress Ink Pad chart. As usual I like to use Stickles to give a shine here and there.

What do you say if we meet again next month ?  Have a happy relaxing crafting.


  1. I love the way on the first one you have added the white Magda, and the pretty mix of stamps look great on the second too. These two sets have a wonderful eastern feel and love the inspiration you have given us. x

  2. Verry pretty, paisley is one of my favourite patterns.

  3. Beautifully designed and coloured cards Magda, Kate x

  4. Two beautiful projects Magda, thanks for sharing.
