A quick post for today's Ombre Midweek Throwdown. I also tried to keep in mind this month's Design Bootcamp focus on the rule of thirds.
Before scrapbooking/card-making and after cross-stitching, I took classes on tole painting. (Does that make me a serial crafter, as Bobbi likes to say?) And, I've been looking for ways to incorporate painting in my card-making. Today's challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity to do just that!
The middle painted strip is Desert Turquoise. The strips on the left and right are blends of Desert Turquoise with Midnight Blue and Light Ivory, respectively. I must admit that I really like the way this technique turned out. :)
The sentiment background is also slightly ombre, with the bottom layer being a sanded version of the orange layer.
When I asked hubby to take a look -- or in hubby speak, "if he was ready for an eye-rolling moment" -- I told him the challenge was an ombre one. His loving response was, "Is that hombre with an H?" He's a funny one, he is. :)
Okay, I really do think this is my last card post for a week or so. Think the schedule is going to require that I be semi-offline these next few days. But, this challenge was too much of a temptation to pass up. Jan, thanks so much for such a fun challenge!
So, have a great end-of-the-week and weekend. Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'
