Flowering Fields, continued


My favorite combination appears to be your favorite as well!  Thank you for your generous comments about what I’ve come to call the Flowering Fields Tile card.  I continue exploring new color combinations with this design.

This version is Soft Sky with Pool Party.  One of the things Stampin’ Up! does well is create tonal pairings in their color spectrum.  I’ve stayed with Very Vanilla card stock and Sahara Sand ink and paper as my foundation.  The Flowering Fields images can be used singly or in repetition, and I don’t copy from card to card, so each one is slightly different from the rest.

If you don’t enjoy coloring, this isn’t the card to make.  I like to color, and because the tiles are small (1 3/8″ x 1 1/8″) if one tile doesn’t please me, I throw it out and start another.  It’s only paper.

This version is Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride.  I miss Crisp Cantaloupe, the retired In Color from last year.  It was an ideal pairing with Calypso Coral, but I try to keep my published work current.  It’s bad enough that I’m still featuring this retired Sale-a-bration stamp set!

My greens are Pear Pizazz and Old Olive, and the sentiment and Flowering Fields images are stamped in Soft Suede.  The Timeless Treasures backgrounds are stamped in Sahara Sand using the stamping off technique.

You might not notice it unless you were really studying the card, but I have a slight obsession with trying to get the floral images AND the backgrounds balanced.  It involves a lot of muttering and staring and shifting, and I have no one to blame but myself.

It’s time to move on to current stamp sets, but I wanted to share this last group of cards to demonstrate the impact of color.  Enjoy the creative process, and thanks again for your kind words.
