The challenge for Day 2 is Ombré and I’ve managed to create two cards from one idea – result! Here’s the first card:

I created a background panel by smushing Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean Distress Inks onto my craft mat in rows, and then spritzing heavily with gold perfect pearls / water. I let the inks bleed into one another before heat setting.

Once dry, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the sentiment from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy Cut Files. I was really pleased with the way this turned out, and you guessed it, I used the leftover bits of the cut to create a second card! Here’s a closeup of the gold perfect pearls:

And here’s the second card:

Imagine how many cards you could whip up so quickly! I foam mounted all the bits and pieces to white card bases and thought about jazzing them up a little, but decided against it…I think the Distress Inks work so beautifully on their own!
