JAI #348 Ombre

Hello there,
well I've been busy busy busy. Busy at work, busy at home and busy crafting. I guess the good side to all that, is that I will have plenty to show you in the future! But right now it's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week our new challenge come from Rochelle. She is asking you to Just Add Ombre. 

The JAI team enjoyed playing with the theme this week and this is what I came up with - a masculine-ish card for an uncle.

The inside.

I had a lot of fun playing with ombre effects here. First, I brayered a transition of blue inks onto both DSP and a Very Vanilla mat, taking care to make the light to dark go left to right on one, and right to left on the other (this is important!) Then I used the Sunburst thinlet die to cut the DSP. Taking the sunburst diecut I layered that over the brayered Very Vanilla mat. The end effect is two ombre transitions! As even masculine cards need bling I added a silver embossed sentiment, stitching with silver thread and a scattering of tiny silver glimmer stars. To complete the inside I sponged rays using an acetate template cut with the Sunburst thinlet die.

Do go and check out the rest of the teams fabulous ombre creations! And please join in the fun too!

  1. This is just so stunning Kim! The layers of ombre is fabulous. Loving the embellishment on the inside too! Just gorgeous! Rochelle xo

  2. Wow, such a fantastic male card, Kim! I love how you've blended your ombré elements so they are contrasting in direction - so clever! And your touches of your silver and stitching are wonderful too. xx

  3. Fabulous! Love the multi layers of ombre kim, such a creative effect and stunning result. xx

  4. The ombre shading on the text background looks fabulous! Gorgeous card, Kim!

  5. Fabulous! Your ombre effects are stunning, Kim. x

  6. I just love the thought you've put into this, Kim, for a really brilliant effect. The shading direction does indeed make a difference. I think this would be a perfectly cool teen card too.
