An analogous with one complement color scheme becomes even more dimensional when neutralized tones are included.

I’m not sure if the scanned image portrays the neutrals properly.  The analogous colors are yellow-green, yellow, and yellow-orange with the complementary color being violet.  There are three variations of the yellow-orange, the background, the top surfaces of the flower press and the edges of the flower press.   All three are neutralized with a touch of the violet complement.

I drew the flower press too small to draw the daisy and pansy design on the wood, so I placed them in the background instead.
