Three Tile LayoutPosted: February 27, 2013 Filed under: Background Stamps, CAS, Glory of Modesty, Penny Black 15 Comments
When I was creating the background stamp tutorial my first attempt was almost complete when I messed up the sentiment. No point letting those pretty flowers go to waste so I punched them out and used the three element in a row layout that Susan Raihala says is her all time favourite layout.
To see how I create that little extra dimension in my flowers check out my tutorial here.
Stamps: Glory of Modesty, Flourish Birthday, Letter Background(PB)
Inks: Memento Angel Pink, Love Letter, London Fog & Versafine Smokey Grey (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Penny Black Mix & Match Papers Rose Garden

Thanks! The scale is very nice.
Love your ‘save’. Beautiful card. TFS
Wonderful card! Like the three backed panels. Lovely colors. Smart to use the lovely artwork you created. I too, try to salvage all I can from my ‘headed for the trash can’ cards. 🙂
I have no idea why I don’t use this layout more often — it’s so effective; well, at least whenever you or Susan uses it. 😛 The background stamp looks great tiled, and the sentiment balances everything nicely.
Wow!!! Thank you for sharing this card! And thank you for the recent tutorial on the technique. I made note of the dimensions of the tiles, too.
[…] I thought it would be fun to show you how this card came about. It started when I saw Heather do this card. So pretty! I liked how she colored her stamp with a marker around the edges, so I figured I would […]
