Brighter Day


Hi and welcome!  Today's challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just Add Ombre - an easy one for me because I love ombre!

Image may contain: text

I was actually tempted to use the card I posted yesterday for this challenge, but as I'd already watermarked it, I decided to go ahead and make another, but use the same sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.


I had this panel already sponged and water-flicked, waiting for an opportunity to use it, so this card came together quite quickly.  I stenciled over the top with Mermaid Lagoon ink and the stencil that came with the My Monthly Hero February kit.  I then colored and die-cut the little elephant from the Fun in the Rain set and added the sentiment.  I added some clear sparkle pen to the umbrella and some clear droplets and my card was done.  Both the ombre panel and the elephant are popped up on foam tape.





Head on over to check out the ombre cards made by the rest of the design team - you'll be glad you did!  

I'm linking this up to the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp and the stencils challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Cheers

This sweet card reminds me of sun showers when I was a kid Karren! I love the effect you got by stencilling over your ombre panel it's so evocative of raindrops. x
