Merry Monday Challenge 203 – Ombre & Glitter

1 Comment

Hello there. So, this is my entry to the Merry Monday Challenge 203 – Ombre and glitter. I didn’t even know what ombre was, so asked Kristie who had set the challenge – and she described it as the graduation of colour from light to dark (or vice versa). Well, I don’t know if this qualifies – is right – or anything…

So, I thought I wouldn’t be able to enter at all…. time was running out… Until I remembered the Christmas piece I had made the other week trying out those fancy egg shaped blending sponges. The colour definitely now blends, and it does move between darker and lighter shades…. but is that what is needed? I have no idea – I simply submit it! I stamped the Christmas tree image, then used a variety of Distress Inks, blended together using said fancy blending sponges. The image was cut out on the Big Shot, then the base card was coloured using slightly brighter Distress Inks in the same range of colours. The topper was attached to the card, prinkles added for glitteriness, the Nadolig Llawen peel-off was added, then three pieces of gold candy. Voila! A Christmas card!

Now I must get this “out there”, then head off to church for the young people’s Talent Show!!! Be back later to comment on other entries…
Take care. God bless.

    Hi Margaret! Thank you for hopping over and leaving your comment. First of all, you did the ombre challenge beautifully. A lovely card. And yes, it would have been me over at WOYWW a while back. Such a great way to touch base with other crafters. Since then the Snippets challenge I run has really taken off and commenting on entries for that is a priority which means I gave up WOYWW as it wouldn’t be fair to link in and not visit others. Why not come and play sometime? You’d be made very welcome and it’s fun! Hugs Di xx
