Blue Ombre and Roses

Hi and welcome.
Today I'm sharing a post that I made for this week's ATSM's Photo Inspiration challenge

The inspiration is the fabulous montage of blue that Kylie put together for this week's challenge at ATSM.


When I saw the bouquet of roses and the stripey pattern in the cake and candles it made me think of Uniko's Pure Florals - Rose and Wonky Stripe stencil.
To start, I made a mask using a previously die cut panel the same size as my card and then secured the stencil over the top and placed it over my card base. Using a mixture of DIs in shades of blue I inked through the stencil onto the base card. After carefully removing the mask and stencil to avoid smudging, I put my base card to one side.
 On a scrap of card, I stamped and embossed the roses and leaves before washing in a pale cream colour into the blooms and shades of green into the leaves, with my Zig pens. When dry, I fussy cut the separate elements and then arranged them into a spray and glued them down on top of the stencilled panel.
My sentiment from Uniko's Simply Said Blocks set, was stamped in black then embossed with a semi dull clear EP, trimmed down and added.
What will take your eye, we'd love to see. If you'd like more inspiration please check out the rest of the team here and then why not join in.
