Honoring Ombre


Isn't this a beautiful photo inspiration that Cath gave us for the Tuesday Trigger this time?  I wish I had anything in those colors, but purples/lavenders are very sparse in my collection.  I knew I wanted to stamp something, so in looking through my inks, my best option for ombre was in these aqua/pool colors.  Hero Arts keeps bringing out inks in these tones, and I'm fortunate to have a few of them.

TT Honoring Ombre

I stamped this Ikat design from Wplus9's Backgrounds & Borders 1 set, using Soft Pool, Tide Pool, and Splash inks, then trimmed it into a panel, framed it in white and added it to my pool layering paper card base.  I thought that this Ali Edwards sentiment from This is the Day worked nicely, and I added a die-cut Leanna butterfly and some enamel dots.

Wishing you a blessed day!
