Wild Wheat is the fifth of our new In Colors and this is week 5 of the Art With Heart blog hop where Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team members share our Colour Creations featuring this week's colour.
Wild Wheat is a funny golden shade like dirty mustard and while it may seem like a difficult colour to use, it's perfect for the centres of flowers. Today I have used three of our new In Colours teamed together, just the way Stampin' Up! has in the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper pack.
First thing I did was grab out the paper and cut a couple of pieces for card fronts. I decided on simple Wild Wheat base cards as the paper already has a lot going on.
Then I cut a stack of flowers and leaves from the coordinating Cheerful Daisies Dies. I just cut them in Basic White card as I wanted to replicate the flowers on the paper and could just use a sponge dauber to add a touch of the ink to the flower centres and the leaves.
I usually spend a little bit of time at this stage arranging them on the card front to see what works best, and it is at this point I got out my trusty sponge daubers and sponged a small amount of Wild Wheat and Pebbled Path onto the flower centres and leaves.
I was going to mount the paper straight onto the Wild Wheat base card, which would have been fine, but the more I looked at it, the more I wanted to add the thinnest border of white around it to frame the images.
That definitely makes it pop more and was worth doing. It adds a formal touch. I could have roughed up the edges of the Designer Series Paper for a more shabby chic look, but I was happy to go with the crisper finish.
I layered the die-cut daisies over the daisies on the printed paper - offsetting them a little so you can still see the layers underneath.
I chose the greeting stamp and label die also from the Cheerful Daisies Bundle to stamp and cut the sentiment piece and adhered most of the pieces with Stampin' Dimensionals or a spot of Tombow Liquid Glue.
