For the ombre color technique challenge, I sponged color me paper with the metallic cream chalks (Pebbles) & metallic rub-ons (Craf-T Products). Also used from HOTP Swirly Brad Buddies (the heart), design Tool Kit #1, Confetti Playground Ribbon set, more brads & ribbon from PW, paper lace doilies, card base and the Love & Heart small stamp. Shown are two scans of the same card, my scanner most times doesn't like cards that are white or have white borders.

Default Jan Week 2 challenge- ombré

I decided to use gelatos on Color me paper. I blended using a baby wipe as in this weeks WOW Color Me episode. I am really happy with the effect. I had tried other blending methods, but they were not satisfactory. I made 2 cards from one small piece of silver swirls Color Me, then I began playing with a layout for a scrapbook page. I confess I did not glue it down, so. I know it doesn't count for the challenge, but I will show it anyway, because I really like the way the chevrons came out when I used a diagonal rainbow ombré of gelatos.

Really beautiful cards girls. Lovely coloring. I decided to cut strips from different shades of green PW cards stock. I used the large label die from Paper Artist and using the same strip of paper cut a frame and turned it so the colors are reversed. I used the center on the inside of the card. I stamped with the Tiny Words stamp set.
The second card is from the white Color Me papers. I used various water color me markers, spritzed with water and blended with a paper towel. I'm leaving this one blank to see what comes up for a card need.

I said I was going to try and join in the challenges more, so here is my card. I used Ocean chalk ink to do the shading, I tried other papers but nothing gelled. I took some pictures of it but the shading didn't show up at all so I opted to scan the card.

Wow! So many great cards!
Bootsie, great job with the metallic chalks. I have a set and always forget to use them.

Linda, Your cards are very pretty and I especially love the way the chevrons turned out for your scrapbook page.

Gramajackie, Great job with the layered papers and I love how you flipped the frame so the colors are going the other direction. I really like your color selection for the butterfly color me.

Carol, I like the blues combined with the off-white of the butterfly and flower center.

Finally got one done - I'm not completely happy with it, but I want to get it in the mix! I've been doing a lot of experimenting with templates and watercolor pencils and gelatos. For this one I used gelatos on one of the Prima stencils PW sells. I didn't have baby wipes so I tried what I had on hand - a clorox wipe! I just basically gave it one swipe down from light to dark. As you'll see in my post tomorrow for the technique challenge, sometimes it's more about experimenting and playing - you learn something for the next time!

Nice Card, Nancy. It looks like the alcohol had a different effect than baby wipes, but I like it. I'm looking forward to reading what you learned.

OK... This one should count. Here's a tea tin I decorated using gold color me paper and the jewel tones creme chalk. I made the labels using the dies I got in the December Cutting Die Personal Shopper kit. I cut acetate covers for the large labels and used repositionable adhesive on the small labels so I can change them when I change the type of tea.
I really like the way this turned out. The gold pattern gives it a Far Eastern look.
