I'm back with another card I have made for this weeks A blog named hero challenge. The theme this week is 'Ombre', hence my ridiculous post title...it's the small things in life eh?
You can find all the deets here...
And here's my card...
I started with a piece of card and inked it up using 'Peacock Feathers' Distress Ink, making sure to put a really heavy layer along the bottom, and to ease off and lighten gradually as I went up, to create the 'Ombre' effect. I then stencilled over the top with Ranger's texture paste, using Hero Arts' 'Triangle Pattern Stencil', and left aside to dry. Once dry, I placed my stencil back over the texture paste, and repeated my 'ombre' inking, over the top. i stamped this lovely sentiment, from Hero Arts', 'Heyday Sentiments', and framed it in a speech bubble from the Clearly Besotted 'You Said It' set. I wrapped some twine around my card to give focus to the message, I do love a tone on tone look, but it does sometimes mean things can get lost. I cut a piece of grey card to use as a mat, stamped some vertical stripes onto it in Versmark ink, and heat embossed in clear powder, for extra interest. I then embellished with some grey enamel dots, some clear 'waterdrop' gems, and a little ribbon flag right in the top corner, and put it all together.
I'm really happy with this card, I think it would work great as a 'guy card'.
I hope you like it, as always, please feel free to comment as I love reading 'em :).
See you soon.
