Stencilling with Eclectic Layers and Some Ombre Sponging

I really enjoyed making this one !

I did some ombre sponging, starting with Rich Razzleberry and working through Berry Burst, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and So Saffron.

Then I created a mask by die cutting what I describe as the trellis die from my Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  The mask was laid over the ombre base and then I sponged through the mask using all of the above colours.

I really like the result - it's soft but effective.

The black die cut sentiment was heat embossed several times with clear embossing powder to achieve a really nice shiny effect.

Hubby came in and his verdict was "Wow - I like that.  Very contemporary" !!  He loved the colours too.  High praise indeed !

Well I hope you like it too.  Its a very nice and absorbing technique.  Should keep you out of mischief for a while !!

Thanks for looking - and I hope you will pop back again.

Bye for now,

Linda xx
