CASology 143 - Ombre
This week's CASology Cue Card is Ombre
I chose a blended form of ombre, starting at the top of my card and blending various blue distress inks to make my sky. I started with the lightest shade and really faded out as I came to about half-way down. Then I added the next shade, but only about one-third of the way, then I added a tiny bit of the darkest shade at the top, making sure all was well blended.
I used an old MFT Sun die and an Avery Elle "Happy Camper" sentiment. My first thought was to place them both right in the centre of the card - this is a classic, simple layout that gives great symmetry and is very pleasing to the eye. But sometimes we like to shake it up a bit, right? So I slightly offset the sun from the sentiment. This adds some interest but it remains balanced, since they're both about the same distance from the centre.
Now it's your turn! Be sure to get even more inspiration from the rest of the DT!
