I'm sharing a card I made for the Avery Elle Challenge #3 Ombre/Gradient!!
I wanted to play with the New Avery Elle Bottle It Up Stamp and Die Sets I just got!!
I also wanted to use the Avery Elle Thanks a Bunch Stamp Set!!
I decided it would be FUN to pull them out and create a card for this challenge using them!! =) I had to think and think and think about how I wanted to incorporate the Ombre'/Gradient design using this set!! Sure the obvious was to use some patterned paper that had a Design already done for me!! Or I could have just stamped a design of some kind!!?? That wasn't Out Side of the Box enough for me so after looking through my stash I came across the New Studio Calico Printed Acetate Papers and I KNEW I wanted to use them for my Bottle!! I Stamped my Bottle and then Fussy Cut it out so I would have the Stamped Line but no border!! Then I took the Printed Studio Calico Acetate Paper and lined up the design then Die Cut the Large Bottle!! I then took my Copic Markers in the Shades B00, B24 and B14 and I colored on the Back Side of the Acetate in between the Printed Design to create a FUN Ombre'/Gradient Design and I LOVE the way it looks!! I then took the Flower Bouquet from the Thanks a Bunch Stamp Set (one of my ALL time FAVORITE Sets) and I stamped the Flowers in a FUN Gradient Design too!! I added all of the Different parts using PTI Poppy and New Leaf Ink, Simon Says Stamp Cotton Pink and Mint Ink, and Hero Arts Butter Bar Inks to stamp the images!! I knew I wanted to create a layered Bouquet so I stamped the Flowers Twice so I could cut them out and layer them up!! I cut out the entire Bouquet and then I inked the edges to finish it off and to add a Vintage look!! I layered the Flowers using foam Tape and then I Added it to the top of my Bottle!! I stamped the Tag and a Sentiment and then I cut them out and colored the edge using a Black Soot Distress Marker to finish it off!! I added it to the side of the Bottle!! I wanted it to look like it was setting on a Wooden Table top so I cut a strip of My Mind's Eye Wooden Patterned Paper and then Inked the Edges!! I thought it need more depth because t looked like the Bottle was just floating so I decided to use the Bottle Die and I Embossed it onto the Front of my card front!! I added some of the Copic Marker B00 Color to the outside of the Bottle Impression for a little bit of shadowing and then I used my Ink Blending Tool to distress the entire card front making sure to add just a hint of color!! I added some Splatters of Heidi Swapp Black Color Shine Spray, a Burlap Bow to the Tag and some Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the Flowers for some extra Shine and detail!! I LOVE the way it turned out and I hope you like it too!!??
Here is my finished Card!!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!
