I try to have a variety of colors and styles for my class cards. This is the third card from April's class and it is a more involved, vintage-y card to balance the clean and simple card from yesterday.
I received a beautiful card swap at the St. Louis Regionals from Cindy Petershagen. I changed the card a bit and used dimensionals to raise the larger flower and add some depth. The newsprint designer paper has a vanilla base and matches our Very Vanilla cardstock. To differentiate the newsprint from the Very Vanilla layer, I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. I also sponged the focal image panel to add texture.

- Field Flowers is a two-step stamp, meaning you have two stamps that work together to give you either a whole image or a multi-toned image. For this particular set there is a more solid stamp, which is your underlying (lighter) color, and a finer line image, which is your detail and shading (darker) color.
- For a tone on tone effect I inked the more solid image with Calypso Coral and stamped it twice on computer paper before stamping the image on Very Vanilla. Then I stamped the detail image at full strength over the solid image.
- You can also use two different colors for this process, the new Crisp Cantaloupe will look fabulous with Calypso Coral!
