Ombré, Ole!

New challenge over at Compendium of Curiosities with Linda Ledbetter and the great crew of designers. Turn to page 57 in CC vol. 3 for all the details on this fun and easy techñique. Be sure to check out all of the great DT projects, prizes from Tim and Mario and this challenge's sponsor The Funkie Junkie Boutique! So much generosity!

We are working on an ombré technique, and here are my backgrounds that I began with, playing with some different colors and ideas.

I need some birthday cards, and was inspired by the hot weather we've been having to go with a beachy theme.

Stamping, charms, glittery sequins, distressed ribbon, stenciling with paint, layers, what more do we need?

Here they individually...

Love this set of stamps from Tim Holtz!



I am liking the soft cool look as well as the bright and fiery one. I have a few little gifts to make to go with these, and they will be ready for a birthday party next week!

Hope you join us in the fun!

  2. These cards are really pretty. Love the way you used the technique!!

  3. These are all wonderful with the stamping. You did the technique well with the starfish and seashell! LOVE those colors too! Thanks for playing along!

  4. Oooh, what a delicious photo of those alcohol ink backgrounds and what wonderful cards! I adore the seashell one with all the deep coral color!

  5. Your beauty theme is just the thing. You've really showcased the alcohol inks here. Your cards really feature how easy this tech makes it to create a simple but stunning card!

  6. Wow...these are awesome birthday cards! I love the alcohol ink colors you whose to use on your backgrounds. They definitely have that "beachy" feeling.
