Funky Fossil January Release - Introducing Paisley Print

The last day of introductions to the Funky Fossil January Release . And such a versatile and fabulous one too!

With so many pretty paisley swirls and twirls it's difficult to choose which to stamp up. So I didn't really and just used as many as I could to create an all over background panel.

I kept the colours simple and added a plain brown card band to the top of the card to avoid it all looking too fussy. The Happy Birthday is the die introduced earlier this week.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Paisley Print
Die: Funky Fossil, Happy Birthday
Inks: SU, early espresso, crushed curry

From using as many as possible of the stamps as I could my next card uses just one. I combined it with one of the Spring Geometrics papers and the wide washi.

The banner and sentiment are from Blooming Wreath and Let's Party.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Paisley Print, banner from Blooming Wreath, sentiment from Let's Party
Paper: Funky Fossil, Spring Geometrics
Washi: Funky Fossil, wide black & white stripes
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, E21, E33, G17, YG00, YG23
Dies: Spellbinders, classic circles small; Xcut spiro circles

My final share today uses some of the smaller stamps from the set to create a unique pattern. This was such fun to do and I had to tell myself to stop before I overdid it. 

I think this is the beauty of this stamp set - the way it lends itself to creating your own patterns and images.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Paisley Print
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, V04, B04, G05

OK so now all the introductions are complete. The stamps, papers, die and washi will all be available to purchase in the Funky Fossil shop from tomorrow and Sarah will be using them in her demonstrations on Hochanda at 5pm and 9pm. Look out for a special stencil created especially for Hochanda too.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. As always it's been great to have your company.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
