The first time I saw this trigger photo I knew I wanted to try the new ombre technique. I love how there are multiple layers of the same color. I also love the butterfly.
Check it out for yourself at Moxie Fab World: Trigger Tuesday
For the technique inspiration, I referred back to a card Lynn at http://themangoboysandme.blogspot.com/
had done a while back. She's the BEST at CAS.
The cute little butterflies and the Mother's Day sentiment is from Stampin Up.
I used Tim Holtz Ice Spruce distress ink.
I wanted more details, so I used SU gold smooches around the edges of the butterfly.
I used a fine tip brown pen to outline each one and then highlighted the outside edge with a white Posca pen.
I don't think I've conquered the ombre technique. I'll keep practicing.
Thanks for stopping by.
