Merry Christmas (Retro Rubber Challenge)

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.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Stay safe

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
