I decided to use my aquatints on some card to make an ombre effect. The first card is one of the pieces just mounted behind a die cut straight into the base card.
For the second card I had a negative from a die cut on my desk and wondered if it would make a suitable mask. Then once I had the shape I wondered what to do with it? I thought this little deck chair and sentiment from Penny Black fitted nicely and I coloured the deckchair in the ombre effect too. I drew in some birds and then for no other reason than it was on my desk added a plastic circle in the sky to balance the composition. I cut it out with a Lawn Fawn rectangle stitched die and then mounted onto the base card.
I'm entering these cards into the colour challenge for Ombre over at Less is More.
