Sunrise Fawn

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!



  1. 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!


  2. 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!


  3. 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. 🙂


  4. Fabulous cards! Love them both! Thank you so much for playing along with us over at the Color Hues Challenge!
