well I've been busy busy busy. Busy at work, busy at home and busy crafting. I guess the good side to all that, is that I will have plenty to show you in the future! But right now it's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week our new challenge come from Rochelle. She is asking you to Just Add Ombre.
The JAI team enjoyed playing with the theme this week and this is what I came up with - a masculine-ish card for an uncle.
I had a lot of fun playing with ombre effects here. First, I brayered a transition of blue inks onto both DSP and a Very Vanilla mat, taking care to make the light to dark go left to right on one, and right to left on the other (this is important!) Then I used the Sunburst thinlet die to cut the DSP. Taking the sunburst diecut I layered that over the brayered Very Vanilla mat. The end effect is two ombre transitions! As even masculine cards need bling I added a silver embossed sentiment, stitching with silver thread and a scattering of tiny silver glimmer stars. To complete the inside I sponged rays using an acetate template cut with the Sunburst thinlet die.
Do go and check out the rest of the teams fabulous ombre creations! And please join in the fun too!
