Hello Everyone, I have a special treat for you today.
Today is my first post with Crop Chocolate as part of their Design Team.
I am so excited about this for many reasons.
Crop Chocolate is an amazing community.
I have only begun to get around over there, they have so much to offer.
We are going to be having lots of fun challenges to inspire you with.
Now, without further ado, let's get on with our first challenge. This is the challenge that the new design team was assigned for our first project.
The theme is OMBRE.
What is OMBRE??
Here is an OMBRE SAMPLER.
It is colors of graduated values used in a project. The colors of one blend into another.
I have done a couple of cards using 2 different techniques.
Here is my first one.
To create the Ombre look for the background, I used different pieces of patterned paper in the colors that I felt mimicked the Ombre feel.
To get the real narrow strips I used my favorite die by Cheery Lynn Designs called Wittle Wickers. This die cuts multiple strips of 1/4" x 5.5" at on time.
I used a scratch piece of paper to build the entire background on, moved the strips around until I liked the pattern and then I glued them all down. After they were all glued down I took a Scalloped Rectangle Die and Cut the background piece to size.
After that. I embellished the card front as seen in the pictures.
For my nest card, I used a mixture of Creamy and Metallic Chalks to make by background piece of paper.
I sealed the colors in using a light coat of modge podge and then embossed the background paper in an embossing folder.
The Ombre treated paper is very subtle and is a splash of color for this cute summer time card,
I had a lot of fun experimenting with this Ombre design.
I had never heard of it before I made these cards and now I am anxious to try it in different types of projects.
I hope you will join us in exploring this design.
