Floral tilesPosted: July 28, 2013
Today’s card is one of those evolving cards that you really don’t need to know the history behind. Yes it did start out as a whole panel with the hillflowers on it. Yes, there were more tiles, five to be exact. But this is how it ended up. Two tiles make a strange layout I know but if you think of the sentiment as filling the third square then it balances a little better.
I inked the stamp with markers and as I was looking for more of a cornflower blue I used both the Danube blue and the Paris dusk markers for the flowers and Bamboo leaves for the stems. I spritzed water on the stamp to blend the blues a little. Once the panel had been cut into tiles I stamped the versamark pad onto the tile and then embossed with a glassy/coarse embossing powder. I had to do it a couple of times to get good coverage. The tiles are matted with a thin navy cardstock.
Thanks for dropping by.
