The Stamping Chef

Ombre


Hi everyone, my post today is a card that I made to give my friends daughter, 
I have used TSC Cat Sixx image and thought that I would have a go at 
the "Ombre Technique" I have to say that it's not quite how I would have 
liked it to turn out, maybe I should have stuck with using acetate or glass mat 
as a palate to blend and lift the colour instead of  trying to blend straight 
onto the image.....never mind I know what to do next time don't I lol and 
more importantly Libby loved it :)
The image is from The Stamping Chef TSC and is called 

Cat Sixx





Card Recipe
6x6 white base card, hot pink bazzill, silver mirri, kanban aqua amore 
damask, silver glitter card, hot pink lace, hot pink satin ribbon and hand tied bow, 
hunkydory foiled sentiment, diamond glaze and silver guitar and 
made with love charms






I coloured this fab image using a selection of pro/flexmarkers, 
I then added some diamond glaze to her lips and the guitar.
In the next picture you can see the charms beneath the hand 
tied bow more clearly.





Well I'm off now to play in the garden while the sun's shining. 
I hope that you all have a fab day too :)
