The three strips (cut from one panel) were from my UnFinished Objects basket, an experiment I was messing with a few weeks ago for Super Saturday. (I am in the thick of preparations now and very overwhelmed by details.) At Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference last month, one of the presenters talked about the ombré trend. Some time ago I designed a camp card showing the Ombré Ribbon technique, and it’s funny that this card — totally different — uses similar colors.
Here the ombré effect (a gradation of color) is done by sponging four different colors over a heat-embossed panel, so it’s also the emboss resist technique. I tested several of these in different colors, but didn’t keep the idea for Super Saturday. I think I sponge a lot, and I don’t want anyone throwing in the … sponge when they see yet another card with this kind of subtle coloring.
Oh, and this card is also for Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week (#124).
