Hello and welcome
I am thrilled to be invited as Guest Designer over at Retro Rubber Challenge!
Their exciting new challenge is “Ombre”! Such fun!!
I had lots of thoughts about how to work with ombre as there are so many choices available.
Finally, I decided on
On a sheet of card I made an ombre wash using Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder in Lava red as it gives such a wonderful shimmer and shine to the card.
I then cut a MFT – Rectangle Peek-a-Boo window.
On a scrap of card I stamped the images from MFT – Beary Special Birthday set, and watercoloured using the Pixie powder and some Tombows, before fussy cutting them out. This is a very old set from MFT but one of my favourites. (Who doesn’t see a cute teddy in a box as the perfect gift under the tree!!)
A piece of vellum was placed behind the window before adding the cute little bear.
The sentiment is gold heat embossed SSS – Merry Christmas die.
