Hello! I have to start by apologizing for the late post. It’s been a classic “one of those”… Considering that I’m already running overtime writing this, how about I get straight to the merit! I hope you like my sketch, it’s based around what’s made to be an ombre / gradient background and I’d really love to see your takes on this! Remember that it’s not only inks / cardstock & dies that can help you achieve that effect, if you love paper like I do then you probably have an ombre sheet of paper tucked somewhere too 🙂 That would be my next choice!
(of course, feel free to do whatever else you wish with that panel… it’s only a suggestion)
Today I have a super talented and the sweetest friend helping me with a sample – Stacey from Stacey’s Stamping Stage! Pop in her blog to see what she cooked up!
Here’s what I did… an ultimate one layer! YAY! I masked the rectangle and sponged it with distress inks, flicked some water over it and stamped the branch (Memory Box) and sentiment (Technique Tuesday). I also added a couple of tiny pearls to the branches.
I was inspired by some additional challenges. I took a pretty literal inspiration in Therese’s card in the Muse Challenge #30. Then I stumbled upon the latest CAS-ual Fridays challenge with the perfectly fitting colours. Funny stuff, I did want to do the inked background from the beginning, without looking for additional inspiration, but these two just made working on this card extra awesome 🙂
