Flowering Fields Versatile Cards For All Occasions

Flowering Fields is one of the most versatile Stampin' Up!® Sale-A-Bration stamp sets available this year.  For today's post I've used the same set and the same basic layout to create different cards. 

As usual I like to challenge my class attendees a little and I included a tiny bit of brayer work. Yes, they all grumbled about it, but as I say - "Practice Makes Perfect".  Seriously tho', the thing about brayering is that it has such a serendipity effect that  all we can do is try to get to know how our colours will work and work a little on our technique each time we try. 

Here is the first card -

I really enjoy the tryptic effect - it gives the original composition a whole different feel.  I have brayered the top part of  a Whisper White piece of card with So Saffron, then stamped a variety of images from the Flowering Fields stamp set, using Archival Black Ink.  The images are coloured  with a Blender Pen and Classic Ink. The card is made from Thick A4 Whisper White.

The next card uses the same techniques - just different colours and a fine mat around each piece of the tryptic.

Just change the greeting, the colour range, add a little punched flower and some Linen Thread and you have a different card.

For the next card I decided to try repeating just one of the flower Images and I really like that effect too. What do you think?

 I have a few more versions of this card on the go and find it fun to change things up a bit. I don't like making lots of the one card, so combining the techniques of this card along with the versatility of choosing just one stamp or combining different stamps from this set gives lots of opportunity to create different results. 

Do you love this set? It is a Sale A Bration set and therefore only available until March 31. If you want it you'll need to act quickly to place an order for $90 AUD and then you can choose it for free.

I hope you are inspired by these cards ,

Until next time
