A Little Ombre Fun!

 - by OttawaMom

It’s Wednesday and we are working with some awesome “Playful” colours this week – Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise.

photo-8I decided to try something I haven’t before and create an Ombre effect with some of the colours.

I started with a piece of Whisper White and then sponged three of the colours, to create the Ombre effect. I mounted that piece onto another piece of Whisper White and then onto the Pacific Point base.

And since one of the challenges at the Friday Mashup is to create an Ombre background, I also decided to mash it up and use their sketch for my card as well.

Our challenge lasts for a week and will end on April 28th, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules – you can check them out here.

Happy Easter everyone!!  I do hope that the Easter Bunny has been good to everyone and that you all get to spend some lovely time with family and friends this holiday weekend. We are off to church this morning, to celebrate this Blessed season and then getting together with family to enjoy an Easter Brunch. Going to be a great day!

This week at Sunday Stamps, Hayley is bringing us a fabulous sketch to work with.

Our challenge:

I kept my card pretty simple, because I really wanted to showcase that big, beautiful blossom! I do love that Stampin’ Up! has so many great punches that work so well together. With many family birthdays in the month of April, I know this card will be put to good use!

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for a new colour challenge at Colour Me…!. This week we have some beautiful, subtle colours for you to play with – Pistachio Pudding, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral.

It’s funny, some weeks I know exactly what I want to do with our colour combos and other weeks I am totally stumped! Happily, this is one of those weeks that I knew exactly which stamp set to grab and what I wanted to do. And not only that, my card came out exactly how I had envisioned it in my head. Boy I love it when that happens!

I stamped the floral image onto Whisper White, with Versamark, before embossing it in gold and then I took out my Stampin’ Markers and got to work colouring in all the pretty flowers and leaves. I then fussy cut them before popping them onto the card with some dimensionals. It was a little time consuming – and I didn’t cut away all of the white, for fear of cutting some of the leaves off – but it was totally worth it!

Our challenge lasts for a week and will end on April 21st, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules – you can check them out here.
