Happy Columbus Day weekend! I have Monday off and I'm planning on going to a craft show at Letchworth State Park here in NY state. They have a really great one all weekend, and I like going on Monday because it's not as crowded. I'm going to take my niece, Maria, with me too so it will be a nice day.
So this week is Trend Week over at Just Us Girls and Sue T. chose the ombre technique. Love this one! On a sad note, Sue T. is stepping down as a designer at JUGs. We will certainly miss her, but understand life comes first! Best wishes to you my friend!
I used Gelatos on a piece of watercolor paper in blue, green, and lime green. Then I added water. The blue and the green look splotchy. I don't know why because I used the smooth side of the paper. Oh well, I think it looks cool. Then I die cut it with the plate. To keep the same texture of the paper, I die cue just the rectangle once again from the watercolor paper and stamped the sentiment. I colored it with lime green and blue copic markers and added enamel dots. The die cut was adhered to a piece of pattern paper.
