Bright colours in a shaker! The ombre is with Distress Oxide overlaid with an My Favorite Things background stamp and Perfect Pearls, a black frame and white metallic "hello" add the finishing touch. Inside, a smile... Hello!
Have I mentioned how much I am absolutely loving the Distress Oxides? They smooth on to the cardstock like a dream.
I used a blending tool and four colours of Distress Oxide to make this ombre panel.
To add a bit more pizzazz, I stamped the panel with a My Favorite Things background stamp with VersaMark and then brushed on Perfect Pearls. After brushing off the excess, I wiped the panel with a Swiffer cloth to be sure there was nothing to rub off later. I really really like how this turned out and will likely do something like this again. It's kind of like embossing but a bit more subtle and without any dimension. It's shimmery in person, too.
I decided to use the sketch from the MFT challenge and make a shaker card.
I die cut a dotted frame from black grasscloth cardstock and backed it with an oval of clear acetate (recycled from packaging) since I forgot to put the clear stuff between the coloured panel and the fun foam.
I die cut a 'hello' from white gold metallic cardstock and another from black fun foam and layered them together. The black foam pops up the hello and gives it a shadow effect.
I dry fit the frame and hello and was very pleased with the look.
I put the panel down on the card base and fit the cut out oval inside for a background to the shaker. I filled the oval with a few jewel coloured sequins of various sizes. The sequin colours echo the card's ombre.
I fit the frame into place, covering the sequins with the clear window.
