FM156 Sketchy Ombre

Ombre or hombre?  How do you pronounce "ombre"?  There was a discussion thread on this topic on Splitcoaststampers recently, which was quite amusing.  This week's Friday Mashup challenge is using the ombre technique.

Sketch by: Lynda
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the "Sketch".
  2. Create a project with the "Ombre' Background Technique".
  3. Or Mash it up and create a project an "Ombre' Background & The Sketch"
  • The stamp image comes from the 2012 Stampin' Up! Convention stamp set I Am..., and I used the Chalkboard technique to create the main panel.
  • I was going for a black & yellow color scheme, and used a Chocolate Chip frame to simulate woodgrain.  I also added coordinating, subtle woodgrain texture to the background.
  • To satisfy the ombre requirement, I brayered a background panel with three different yellows. 
  • I grabbed some script from the Walk in the Park II download, added a 0.2" offset, and cut it out with an e-cutter.

Heidi, cute card. I like the yellow and black together. The chalkboard technique is also one of my favorites!

Fab card, Heidi! I love that chalkboard technique. The rolled paper flower is a great touch.
