This week’s Make It Monday theme is ‘A La Carte’ … meaning we get to choose a technique from any of the forty seven video’s this year. As I’ve only joined in with two so far, I had fun reviewing all the mouthwatering ideas … and finally settled on Week #120 … Overlapping Ombré.
I used one of Papertrey’s Sketched Shapes banners to create my ombré banner, stamping each colour twice … dandelion to canteloupe to tangelo … and then overstamped it with the chevrons (extended a little) and sentiment from the same set. The banner was trimmed out, mounted on black and adhered to a linen textured card base. It was tempting to add something, but as I couldn’t find the ‘something’ it needed, restraint prevailed and I left it unadorned!
I do hope you enjoyed a truly blessed Christmas, full of joy and wonder … and are happily preparing to welcome 2014 in just a few days … exciting isn’t it? I’m hoping to fit in a card or two before the year end, so should be back soon. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight! Anita 🙂
