Happy Friyay everyone!
Next up today I’m playing along with the Color Hues challenge.
I’m using the same Penny Black supplies as the last card I blogged – the beautiful Grazing Fawn die (51-672) and the fun Geometric Borders (51-196) – although these are pretty difficult to see.
To create the aqua background, I used Tumbled Glass, Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers distress oxide inks. I had originally tried blending regular distress ink but couldn’t get a decent contrast between Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers. I think I was maybe a little heavy handed with my initial layer of Salvaged Patina…. In any case I switched over to distress oxide and was happier with the contrast.
So here are my two ink blended Fawn cards together – Sunrise and Sunset! Which colour combo do you prefer?
Thanks for stopping by!
OMG! BOTH!! I love them both! Such a wonderful idea Lucie! WOW! I am so tickled you played along at Color Hues as I got to see both of these fabulous cards! Take care!
What a striking design … love them both
The first words that came to mind when I saw this in the gallery was “so striking,” and I see I’m not the only one! The card design is a wonderful CAS design and the grazing fawn die is fabulous. Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!
I think that DOxs are much more forgiving when blending but none the less it makes a fab contrast to the black silhouette. They are both very striking cards equally lovely, thanks for sharing one at Color Hues. 🙂
Fabulous cards! Love them both! Thank you so much for playing along with us over at the Color Hues Challenge!
These are both super gorgeous!!! Thanks so much for joining us at Color Hues!
