Good day to you (:o)
Challenge six is about the ombré technique, Sylvia Blum is showing in the current CraftStamper january issue on pages 6 - 8. Read all about the guidelines here.
There is plenty of time to enter your card, layout or 3D item ( any theme or colour as long as it features the ombre technique and some real stamping), till midnight Friday Februar 7th 2014
My entry is another Home Decor
I mentioned earlyer, that i'm in the blue mood this year (:o)
To explain this decor, i have to show you the first finished results first
Step by step
I started with the glass ornaments
It's important to clean the surface with alcohol before painting
I used Americana Frost Gloss Enamels from DecoArt
I started with white and dabbed on the paint with a sponge
After a drytime of 20 minutes, i dabbed on the next colour ( turquoise)
...and finished with blue
Next was this white, flat bowl
Cleaned with alcohol first and dabbed on the white colour onto the hole bowl
When the white paint was dry ( you see the shine is gone) i started with dabbing the darkest colour on the bottom
At this stage i realized, this bowl will need a lot layers .....
..and i changed my mind and used a brush for the next layers
The outside is cleaned with alcohol and painted, too
For the finished layer, i dabbed on the white glass paint with a sponge on top again
The instructions says:
Let dry 4 days
Next...i figured out how to decorate it...
I don't wanted to comlicate the stamping part....( my first thought was to stamp some snow flakes on tissue and adhering the tissue to the glass ornaments) because i want to use the glass ornaments as a flower vase in the summer,too ( imagine some sand and sea shells?) You'll see.....
I distressed the ombré part and stamped two small white tags
Stamped and silver heat embossed snow flakes
Hope you like my ombré inspiration
