Shopping Our Stash #479: Hey (H)Ombre challenge

Hello everyone! Today I am excited to share the Design Team card I made for Shopping Our Stash challenge #479, where we want you to use ombré in your project (with patterned paper, inks, stamps, or any other way). I decided to also use this challenge as a way to create a background for the level 2 Altenew Academy Beyond Basic Backgrounds class.

Supplies used:

This card started with the background panel. A piece of watercolor paper was die cut with the second-largest stitched rectangular die from Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set to use as the background panel. The same die was used to cut out a scrap piece of paper that was then used to create a DIY stencil. The chocolate square die cut from the Altenew's All Things Sweet die set to create the stencil by die cutting multiple times out of the piece of scrap paper. I then ink blended through this DIY stencil with two colors of brown ink starting with the lighter color (Tea Dye Distress Ink) towards the top and blending down to the darker brown (Vintage Photo Distress Ink) towards the bottom in an ombré manner for the challenge onto the die cut watercolor paper. After the ombré ink blending, I then went back and stamped over each of the blended areas with the chocolate square outline stamp from Altenew's All Things Sweet stamp set with Dark Brown Shimmer Delicata Pigment Ink and then heat embossed them with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. After all of the blended areas were stamped with the chocolate squares stamp and heat embossed, I then ink blended around the edges of the ink blended watercolor paper with more of the Tea Dye Distress Ink. 

Next came the stamped and die cut cupcakes and chocolate squares. I stamped the cupcake from Altenew's All Things Sweet stamp set twice with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink on white paper, and then again on two different patterned papers from Amy Tangerine's Shine On patterned paper pack. The outline chocolate squares stamp from the All Things Sweet set was stamped with Dark Brown Shimmer Delicata Pigment Ink.All of the stamped images were heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. The stamped images were die cut with the corresponding dies from the Altenew's All Things Sweet die set. I then trimmed the patterned paper stamped images so that I could paper piece the cupcake wrappers out of the patterned paper "wrapping" and then glued them onto the watercolor paper cupcakes. Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in pink and orange were mixed with water to watercolor the frosting of both cupcakes in an ombré manner; pink and red markers mixed with water were used to watercolor the gumballs(?) on top of the cupcakes. The chocolate layer between the frosting and gumball was watercolored with Vintage Photo Distress Ink mixed with water, as was the cupcake on the left side (with the pink wrapper). The vanilla cupcake on the left was colored in with a very light orange marker. Sparkle was added to the gumballs, frosting and chocolate by coloring them in with my Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen. 

I splattered the stenciled card panel with some of the leftover pink, orange and brown watercolors created to color in the cupcakes and chocolate squares. I then glued the top panel to a piece of  Rose Gold glitter cardstock from Sizzix's Opulent Cardstock Pack die cut with the largest die from Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set.

The sentiment came from  Ink Road Stamps' Lit AF stamp set, stamped with more of the Dark Brown Shimmer Delicata Pigment Ink and heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder on watercolor paper. The paper was then trimmed with my paper trimmer on three sides to be close to the edge of the sentiment. On the right side, I trimmed it at an angle. I added a piece of scrap cardstock that was just a little larger than the sentiment strip and watercolored the bottom of the scrap cardstock with some more of the leftover pink watercolor and glued the whole thing behind the sentiment.

To assemble the card, I added the cupcakes and the die cut chocolate squares to the card panel. The cupcake with the pink wrapper was glued directly onto the stenciled card panel. The cupcake with the white and floral patterned wrapper was glued next, with an additional layer of scrap cardstock added behind the right side of the cupcake to make it lay flat over the other cupcake. Finally, the chocolate squares were glued on the left side of the cupcakes with a couple of scraps of cardstock behind the left side of the chocolate again to allow the die cut to lay flat. Catherine Pooler's Providence sequin mix were glued onto the card panel in groups of 3 (sometimes another element of the card stood in for the 3rd element). Finally, the whole thing was glued onto an A2-sized white cardbase.

We hope that you are able to join us for our challenge over at Shopping Our Stash and thanks for reading!
