Love Field

At Just Add Ink this week we have a really fantastic sketch from Bronwyn.
JAI 101

I decided to try using my “new” Field Flowers set again to see whether I could come up with something.  When the main Stampin Up catalogue came out in September, Field Flowers and Perfectly Penned were my first two picks.  I thought they were so beautiful, but I have tried using these flowers a couple of times and I just haven’t been happy with anything until I tried them with this sketch.


Yay!   I actually made a card with them and I am so happy with how it turned out.  Aren’t those flowers gorgeous?
It was so much fun experimenting with different colours for the flowers and then also brayering different colour combos to compliment them.
I made 3 different cards using the same sketch and I could have kept going and come up with other colours too I’m sure.  I will have the other two cards on my blog over the next week.  I couldn’t even pick a favourite, I liked how they all turned out.  I will have to try making some more.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Field Flowers
Card : white, cajun craze, saffron, neutrals dsp stack
Ink : daffodil, cherry, celery olive, mustard, crumb cake, olive, stazon
Other : big shot, scallop square, nesties, brayer, mat pack, white pen

Field Flowers is a two-step set.  First I stamped with daffodil and then with cherry and cut them out.
I brayered celery and then olive on the bottom of the circle.  Daffodil, mustard and cherry at the top.  I then sponged around the outside of the circle with cherry.  I stamped the stem with olive and used stazon to stamp “with love”.
Please take a look at what the rest of the design team came up with this week.  It really is a wonderful sketch!  Give it a try and please show us what you create :)
