Symmetry and Ombre’

I’m too busy to keep up with the daily challenges, but try to get a bit done here and there.  So, Day 3 at MFT Summer School was Symmetry.  People usually look at the card as if it is divided in half either vertically, or horizontally.  I went with diagonally.

8-4-20 MFT Symmetry

A friend and I decided that we were going to go through the MFT Summer School classes and stretch ourselves with a couple of our own requirements.  I didn’t use those on this, but I did add a shadow to my flowers, which I almost always forget to do, so I did stretch a bit.

On the above card, I used the MFT Beautiful Bloom stamp and the Beautiful set and die.

Day 4 was Ombre’ day.  I had so much fun with this one!

How many shades of gray are there?  WAY too many, but I used several in this one.

For this card, I used the MFT Masculine Graphic T stamp set.  It is a wonderful set, but has been retired for quite a while.  I also used gravel gray, cement gray, and others.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today!

  1. Both cards are great! The bold flowers are so lovely and you nailed symmetry perfectly. The ombre’ is the perfect masculine card and your inking flows so well.

  2. Both cards are great. Love the way you divided the first one. Different makes it special. I also like the ombre effect on the second. Good masculine style card.

    1. Thank you Johanna. That second one is going to my nephew for his 20th birthday. Yikes, it’s hard to believe he’s going to be out of his teens in another 2 weeks. I haven’t quite figured out the inside, but I think he’ll like it.
