If you saw the title of this post you might be curious…
What the heck is an Ombre Technique?
Well, it just means using gradient colors from either
light to dark or dark to light. Simple right?
This week Jugs challenge is being sponsored by
Yep, that’s right – the winner of this week’s challenge will get to choose
the stamp set they want! Thanks so much Cindy — so generous of you!
Today’s JUGS challenge was so much fun to make.
Here is what I came up with.
The first thing I did was…
embossed the script background onto a piece of white card stock
using Opaque embossing powder.
After I heat set it, I took some SU Pool Party ink and my sponge
dauber and applied the ink from light to dark.
This wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, I realized it is hard for
me to apply a small amount of ink. I must be a heavy sponger just like
I am a lead foot driver. TeeHee! So this is my second attempt.
In-fact, I think now maybe I should have tried again. Next, I added
some images (Close to My Heart) around the perimeter of the card using the same ink.
The sentiment Beautiful is actually from Prima.
My borders are both Martha Stewart and My Favorite Things.
The tag is from Spellbinders and the letters Y.O.U and floral swirl
I cut out with my cricut. Added some flowers for a final touch!
Don’t let my 2 attempts scare you away…
You can achieve this effect using papers instead of ink as well!
I hope you enjoyed my card and what I really hope
is that you will pop on over to JUGS and join the team and I
and show us what you can do with this great….. Ombre Technique!
Have a great day!
