It's Ombre' time at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!!!

Welcome to the new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.......O is for Ombre'. I checked out Jennifer Maguire's video on backgrounds with distress oxide inks and took a few pointers from her.  I also took a few pointers from Edna as you will see soon.


Isn't Edna fancy shmancy in her ombre' dress....thank you Lee you are a jewel.


First I stamped Filigree background stamp (long retired from Stampin'up) with versamark watermark ink and embossed it in white embossing powder. Using TH distress oxide peacock feathers I covered the background in a an ombre' fashion then taking a soft cloth cleaned off any ink that was on the white embossing.  Then added the SMILE die cut. My inspiration for my card was both the sketch and the "Mint" colour from the current Fusion challenge.


Close up of the sentiment


Well I did have to add a smidgen of snark with a sentiment from Printworks

I am entering this in:

Fusion Card Challenges ~~ Used both the sketch and the photo colours

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects they are awesome and will give you the inspiration to try this awesome technique.
