Ombre Wishing


Hi and welcome to another fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our hostess is the talented Cindy Hall.  Check out her sketch:


For my card, I was inspired by last week's Make It Monday video and did some masked ink blending.  I used what are probably my favorite distress ink colors - Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers to sponge a rectangle and then flicked a bit of Perfect Pearls solution over the top.  I cut the panel with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and then die-cut the sentiment and sponged some Peacock Feathers ink in an ombre fashion before adhering it to the white panel.  The rest of the sentiment was stamped in black ink and the whole panel was popped up on the card base using foam tape.


To finish it off, I adhered some rainstones onto the panel.



Thanks for visiting!  The rest of the design team have some wonderful inspiration for you so be sure to check them out.

I'm linking this up to CASology's CAS challenge and congratulate them on their 200th challenge!
