Paisley wrap

I was going to say a quick post but there is nothing quick about this project!

Some time ago I bought a roll of blank wrapping paper to create my own patterned paper. I needed to wrap a fairly large present and I set out to stamp a 6 by 6cm (2" 1/3x 2" 1/3) square repeatedly to create it.

BIG mistake... took hours (and nearly 50 inking & stamping actions) but there it is at last:

My oldie stamp is by Personal Impressions (Paisley Flourishes) and I added a ready made topper on a label die-cut (Spellbinders).

Thanks for coming by,
I am  entering the SSS Monday Challenge and the Stamping Sensations (My B is for Blue) challenges.
