The Kindness You Show --- FM193

I haven't used the triple layer technique for a long time and the challenge at The Friday Mashup this week gave me the push to use it again.  Looking at my card, I wonder why I've stayed away from the technique for so long.  It really does give a "wow" finish to a card.

With all the wonderful new stamp sets it wasn't hard to pick some floral stamps for my card.  In the end I wound up using Lotus Blossom, Painted Petals, Butterfly Basics and Papillon Potpourri.  Yes, I used four stamp sets and I love the final result.

I stayed within a subtle range of colours, using Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist and Baked Brown Sugar.  For my cardstock, I used Naturals White, Whisper White and Baked Brown Sugar.

Just for fun I set the second layer off-kilter and love the effect.  


For more cards using this technique and/or flowers, check out the Friday Mashup.
