Inspired by....Bohemia Mixed Prints .......In Your New Home Handmade Card

Another trend that has emerged for Autumn/ Winter 2015/16 is the use of Bohemian mixed prints. They are  being used in combinations to great effect.

Working on this theme, today's 'Inspired by...' card features assorted colourful patterns which build the background design in varying dimension for this, my New Home card.

I used a Fiskars scalloped square squeeze punch to punch nine scalloped squares from assorted patterns in the Basic Grey June Bug 6x6" paper pad and stuck them onto a pastel lemon pearlescent square card in grid fashion. Some are glued directly onto the card and some are layered for dimension to the colourful background.

I added a Metro metal word from Colorbok for 'Home' with the start of the sentence above it. This is on a rectangle of cream card, matted on red. I doodled a dashed line around this layer and the card.
I also used a white Posca pen to draw highlights on the metal word.

I'm liking the combination of so many prints on one card. It's so on trend! To be honest, it was more of a challenge for me, as I would not consider using quite so many prints on one card normally!

Have you used a selection of many prints on one craft project? How did you use them? How did you stop your design from looking too overcrowded with pattern?
