Card #32 – Ombré

Another card with  Distress inks blending into one another. With a stencil and a bunch or even just 2 ink pads, you can come up with a similar card. The process of blending in the colours soothes your nerves and to top it, the moment you remove the stencil to reveal the pattern underneath is precious! I am an absolute beginner to this technique, and it can be nothing but addictive. The first card I made using the same technique can be found here.


Supplies used:

1. 65lb Recollections® White Card stock paper

2. Thinlits dies – Sizzix®

3. Tim Holtz® Distress inks –  Fired brick, spiced Marmalade, Mustard seed, Mowed lawn, Evergreen bough, Chipped sapphire

4. 6X6 Stencil from The Crafters Workshop® – Mini Garden gate

5. Black Permanent marker Sharpie®

Thanks to  Just Add Ink #348…”Just Add Ombre”for the inspiration.

    Revealing that beautiful image from under the stencil would be a big wow. Your colour blending is really beautiful & I love the pattern. The sentiment really pops too. Glad you could play along at Just Add Ink.
