Technique Time at Just Us Girls


DSC_0165Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 1.28.57 PMHello Friends,

The Ombre technique is what Sue T. has in store for us and hopefully you this week over at Just Us Girls.  Speaking of Sue…this is her last post at being a fellow Jug Head and we are sad to see her go, but understand that her schooling and career is all sure currently has time for these days and wish her the Best of Luck!  HUGS to you Sue!  Now back to the ombre technique.  I have seen this technique interpreted many different ways using all sorts of art mediums…ie, chalk, watercoloring, paper and etc.  I stuck with the paper version which is a lot like the JUGS graphic this week. As you can see my background is a cascade of pinks going from lights to darks. I didn’t like the transition lines in between the papers from one piece to the next so that is when I decided to put in the white, victorian scalloped dividers.

The stamps are a mixture of Gina K Designs and Verve.  The flowers are made from 3 different punches.  The centers of the flowers are either Stampin up dots or paper.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and come on over to JUGS and play in our challenge.  While your there say farewell to Sue and check out the work of our Guest Designer Wanda.  Her card is incredible!!!  Remember If you are selected as Chic of the Week you will be in the running as a possible Guest Designer with us in the month of December.

See you at JUGS!
