ABC Blog Hop- O

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter O. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their O element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Darlys then you're on the right track!

For my technique, I decided to showcase Ombre stamping, which is also known as generation stamping. I also thought Outside the Paper Packet, using a Winter/Christmas set for a birthday layout.

I inked up a flower stamp with Outdoor Denim Pigment Ink, and then stamped three flowers without re-inking the stamp each time. This way, I get three different colours of flower from one ink application. This is a great way to get lots of tonal features in a card or layout, and also works well when you want to create a cluster of the same image.

Here is the completed final layout, although the group photo has been blanked out due to privacy reasons.

I put my ombre flowers at the top and bottom corners of my layout, to help draw attention to where the journalling will be and also to balance the page.
