One of the challenges this month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge is to create a page using ombre.
I decided to attempt an ombre background. I took a sheet of resist cardstock from Stampin Up! and two shades of pink Glimmermist (Cherub Pink and Cranberry Zing). I sprayed away starting with a light spray of the Cherub Pink at the top of the page and building up to a darker pink at the bottom.
As you can see it is not an exact graduated pattern with mist but you get the idea and I was quite happy with it. I especially like the resist print where the ink was darkest.
Of course that much mist made all my corners curl up.
Here is a shot of my layout in progress with various items from my desk holding down the corners. I am sure it will be fine once it is in a page protector in my album but it was a challenge to scrap on. Of course if I was patient I could have left it to flatten out under a few books but that wasn't going to happen. Once I had my idea I had to scrap....right then.
I layered in lots of extra bits and pieces (mostly off my desk - really should clean up that desk) including a doily, some stars punched from vellum, some chipboard phrases from Echo Park, more lovely printed tissue and my title lettering which is from Heidi Grace (from about 2006 I think).
Here is the completed layout (curly corners and all).
I added in this cute striped paperclip (from K& Co's Smash Line).
A closer look at the journalling.
And one last peek at a few more of the layers.
Hope you can join in the Third Challenge at Counterfeit Kit Challenge this month and try your hand at ombre.
