Ombre with Erika

So, my friend Erika and I decided to stretch ourselves as we go through the MFT Summer School challenges by using stencils and doing things differently than our normal.  This is what I did for Ombre’ Day using our extra requirements.

What I used my MFT Framework Stencil for was embossing.  Yes, you can do that.  Used pressure embossing for that.  Then, decided to trace some of the background with Ranger’s Emboss It pen (clear) and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  It certainly brightened up those sections.  So, used a stencil 2 ways, then did my sentiment only “prettying up” the top two corners.  Definitely not my style, either.

As I used embossing, I’m also sharing this one with the Always Fun Challenge of embossing powders.  Another friend, Lisa, shared their challenge site.  It’s so nice to have friends that make you grow.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today!  Your time is valuable and I do appreciate you spending some with me.  Have a wonderful day!

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.

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!
