FM193 Birthday Pine

Sara has challenged us to the triple-layer technique at the Friday Mashup.

Ok, clearly I have issues.  I never really liked the look of triple-layer stamping, because as my daughter would say when her father wears checked shirts, it's too square.  I have the same issue with cards that are perfectly centered.  It's a disease.  So I wanted to try something a little different with my card, but with pinterest searches and thinking, nothing was springing to mind.  Insert creative block and several days of inactivity here.

Then the light bulb goes off... combine triple-layer stamping and a clean&simple sketch, in this case, Sketch #313.

This week's Mashup Challenge is:
  • Create a project with the "Triple Layer Technique" Tutorial HERE.
  • Create a project that's "Floral". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Floral Triple Layer Project".
Ok, so I didn't get it mashed up with a floral element, but a nature element is close?  The fact I finally got a card done is a miracle in itself.

Stamps: Ornamental Pine, Express Yourself; Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White; Ink: Mossy Meadow, Baked Brown Sugar.

I love your interpretation of floral. Pine ones are used in many 'floral' the card...

Heidi, it's funny that you mention the "too square look". I don't think it's bad, but I don't love it either. I guess it just depends on what is stamped on it. Some I love, some are ok. I wanted to really change the technique up a bit so that's what I did with my card. Love how you changed it up too.
