Hello everybody! It's that time again for another challenge over at Inkspirational
! This time our lovely and talented DT member, Pia
, had the choice of what the challenge would be. She chose Ombré. Who doesn't love the look of ombré?
Not sure what ombré means? Here's a definition: Ombré is when the colour is graduated in tone eg. a colour that fades from dark grey to light grey. Of course any colour can be used on the project. Hope that helps. Now here's my card...
I almost created another one layer card. Apparently I'm obsessed. LOL. I started by creating an ombré background by masking off a strip of my white card base and then sponging Memento Cantaloupe ink from dark to light. Then I stamped my foliage and dandelion in the cantaloupe colour a few times and then stamped my fox in the same colour. Then I stamped the foliage and dandelion again in grey and the black. I lightly sprayed my heirloom gold Perfect Pearls mist over top. I'm apparently obsessed with it as well. :-). Then I removed the mask and created another to
sponge a narrow strip using black and grey ink to create another ombré effect. I stamped my sentiment in black and cut it out and adhered it with some foam dots. All the stamps used in this card are from a set called What A Fox, by Fiskars. This is my first time using this set so it is NBUS! I got it quite a while ago on our last trip to Bangor, ME. I really like the foliage and the fox.
I hope you will play along with us this challenge. We love seeing you there! Take a look at what the other girls on the Ink DT have created too. It's fantastic as usual. Plus, we have the amazing Deepti,
of Dee's Art Utopia
