From Jugs to Vases to a Bluebird Landscape?

 Remember the two posts that I've done recently with the Stampendous Perfectly Clear "Vases" set? The "Beatnik Jugs" easel frame card, and the "Triptych of Vases", on their own were great examples of the versatility of the Stampendous sets of Perfectly Clear images. Both of those samples were polar opposites of each other, and amazingly enough, this card uses the same set yet again, and belongs in another category all of it's own. I designed this card for a color challenge for a recent magazine submission call. I thought it was a strange group of colors to put together, and I struggled with it a bit, but I think it works for this card. I used the branches from the Perfectly Clear
set as trees in a landscape, and the dot groups of images vaguely mimic leaves. I chose to highlight the deep blue-green color by stamping the birds from another Perfectly Clear set, "Tweet Cages". The torn cardstock completes the landscape. I added a simply tied twine and sentiment tag to finish it off. I like the relaxed simplicity of the final card. I wonder what I'll do next with that set?
