CASology 143 – Ombre

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back again with another Cue Card for you!!!

Week 143 - Ombre

I love this week’s cue card.  Creating ombre cards are always fun.  I love how the colors go from dark to light or vise versa.

Its all about baby stuff for me this week so I decided to stick with that theme.  Last week I received the new Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints 8 stamp set and I fell in love with the onesie stamp!!

Take a look at what I created this week:

Welcome baby (CAS)

I just love how this baby onesie turned out, don’t you? Soooo, do you want to know what colors I used on my onesie?

To color my onesie, I applied the 10 + 2 rule to my Copic coloring!!

What is that you ask?  Well instead of staying with the natural color blend, I decided to step it up a notch.

1. I started with B00 then add 10 to those zeros then I added 2, which gave me B12.

2. Then I add 10 to the 12 then add 2, which gave me B24.

3. That gave me B00, B12 and B24 – 10 + 2!!

By do that, I intensified my colors.  The darker color is truly dark and will stand out more.  That goes for the mid-tone color as well.

I’m totally impressed by those colors.  I want to practice that technique with other colors to see how it looks.

The rest of the card was easy to pull together.  My card base and card panel were die cut with My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Rounded Rectangle Stax.

I mounted the card panel to the card front using a piece of white fun foam.

I stamped the sentiment using So Suzy Stamps Welcome Baby stamp featured in her new Baby Featurette Series which you can find here.

Super doper cute and simple.
