Just Add Ink # 348 Ombre

Here’s the new Just Add Ink Challenge.  #348 Just Add…Ombre.  This challenge was suggested by Rochelle and it’s one I have been looking forward too since it was first discussed by the Just Add Ink Design Team last year.

The definition of Ombre, is having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially in fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

It also an old three-handed card game popular in Europe especially in the 17th and 18th centuries – although I don’t know much about the game!

But the colour side of it can be applied to so many things in so many ways.   In terms of Hair colours it’s often dark at the top fading to light at the bottom – and looks fantastic.  But it does not have to be restricted to just hair colours………

I put together a couple of Ombre cards, using different effects.

This is the perfect challenge to practice your brayering or sponging too.   So have a go with us!

Here is the card I made:Image may contain: plant
I used a stencil to add the leaves to the card first and then die cut some flowers  The little Perfect Plum flowers are stamped on.
These colours may see Challenging – however there are loads of ways they can be used.  Go to Just Add Ink and check out what the Design Team have done with them.

JAI # 346 Just Choose Two…….Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week allows us to combine a couple of things for our projects.  The idea is to Choose Two!   Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies.  Here is the card I put together:

My idea was to try to use the pages from a colouring book in some way – so I die cut some Butterflies (and left them uncoloured).  I used a floral DSP to add some colour too.

So go to Just Add Ink and check out all the great projects that also Just Add Two (Hearts, Flowers or Butterflies).   And remember to share your project with us.
