How to Ombre Easy!

CDD Easy Ombre With DT Judy

Hi Everyone! Judy here from the CDD Digi team bringing you the worlds easiest ombre technique! Now I say worlds' easiest but I haven't literally been all over the world so... Ok first lets just understand, to ombre is to create a gradient. There will be a darkest part and lighten up to a lightest part. For this project I have only used one color of Distress oxide Ink, Salty Ocean. I also used  one of the Ranger small round ink applicators. Distress and Distress Oxides work great for this technique because you can layer and increase the depth and brightness of the color.

So I started using my blending tool at one end of the cardstock and applied a first layer. I then applied subsequent layers starting at the same end and going a bit further down the cardstock with each layer.
By the time I have reached the bottom of the cardstock the top may have four or five layers of the ink and the bottom will only have one. There you have ombre.
From here I have then used this as my background and then create my card. I have used the CDD Digi image called Genie Wishes and colored her with Copics. I fussycut her and adhered her to our ombre background. I added a bit of sparkle to the background with CDD Polar Frost sequins and Nuvo Glitter accents in Fresh Snowfall. I then cut out my sentiment from the Wishing Die from CDD and also used Fancy Frame Dies to cut out my ombre layer and adhere to a plain white base.
I do hope you like this project and thank you for stopping by!
 
Hugs,
Judy

Fairies for My Birthday!

Hi Everyone! So today is my birthday! Yay!!!! Roght now I am obsessed with fairies, unicorns and flowers. So today I want to share with you all this fun and easy project with Fairies! I am using the Retro Square Bracelet in Black, Fairies Image Sheet, Fantastic Glaze and Glue, and Fantastic Super Sticky Dots.
Take your image sheet and pick your images. This particular bracelet uses eight images. Apply Glaze and Glue to the flat side of the jewelers glass and place on the image sheet images you want to use in your project. Hold until they grab. Let dry and trim around the glass. Then place Fantastic Super Sticky Dots into the spots on the bracelet where the glass will go and then stick in the glass pieces.
Super easy right? And look how pretty this is!!!!

 One of the things I really love is how amazing the image sheets are and how once you have them under the glass you can see all the amazing detail in the images.
I hope you like this project and pick your favorite images and give it a try! I can't wait to see what you create!
Hugs,
Judy

Enjoy The Little Things With Craft Fantastic

Hi Everyone! I don't know about you but this time of year seems to get really hectic busy crazy. The school year starts wrapping up, dance recitals, summer plans, etc. Well my daughters are both very creative and know mom is a creative junkie so if they come across things that might be useable in a project they will save these things and give them to me. In this case, one of my daughters came across this really pretty page in a magazine with beautiful flowers and so she tore it out and left it on my crafty desk saying thought you might like to use this in one of your projects. Well I really loved this page and the flowers were all so perfect. So perfect in fact that I didn't want these beautiful flower pictures to get lost under a collage layer or lost in a background.

I chose a simple Large Oval Pendant Tray and a Large Oval Glass, some Glaze and Glue and some Super Sticky Dots and created this beautiful pendant! Just add a chain and presto!
I hope you have enjoyed this simple project and can't wait to see what you create!

Hugs,

Judy
