Oh So Lovely Oh So Eclectic Collage Cards
When I approach a collage card, I like to break it down into three basic layers: the background, the focal point and the filler. Focusing on each piece of the collage puzzle separately helps make it less intimidating for me. It reminds me of a little rhyming phrase that gardeners use when designing a large container of flowers. They look for the Thriller (large, bold focal point), the Filler (medium-size elements that surround and enhance the Thriller) and the Spiller (the elements that cascade over the sides of the planter, or in this case the background of the card).
The Spiller—I started this card by die-cutting a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White card stock with the pretty diamonds thinlit, creating a window layer. Next, I stamped the Oh So Eclectic crosshatch leaf image in Emerald Envy onto the bottom left corner to start creating part of the "Filler" layers.
I layered some of the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper in a Night of Navy gradation behind the window, then adhered it to a 3-5/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Night of Navy Card stock. It's mounted onto a Berry Burst card base.
This time, I stamped the watercolor flower in Berry Burst, layered a Fresh Fig die-cut over the top and added a Peekaboo Peach stamped flower center. So sweet!
