PTI MIM #259: Ombre Cluster Stamping

Dawn delighted us with her Make It Monday for Papertrey Ink ombre cluster stamping. You can see her video and details here. Since I don't own Floral Sketches yet, I hadn't to peruse my stamp sets to see which ones might work. Not sure mine are as ombre looking as Dawn's, but I think I got the general idea. Here are the two cards I created.

Because it's difficult to see the Glitter pen used on the leaf veins above, I added a closeup below so hopefully you can see it better. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Rustic Cream and Dark Chocolate
Ink: Melon Berry, Canyon Clay and Terracotta Tile
Stamps: Leaf Prints, Mum's The Word and Harvest Berries
Dies: Sketched Shapes
Other: Gelly Roll Glitter Pen and Enamel Dots (Michaels)

Here is my second card using Mum's The Word in a cluster with somewhat of an ombre color palette. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Kraft
Ink: Terracotta Tile, Americana and Canyon Clay
Stamps: Mum's The Word
Dies: None
Other: Paintbrush Splatters (watercolors) and Sponged Edge

These are both so pretty, Kath! The sparkly leaf veins are such a nice touch and I love the mums! That's a set I never bought, but I wish I had.

Kathy, both designs and color combinations are great - I see you are thinking Fall too! The two sets you selected were the two sets I had in mind to use (I used Leaf Prints).

Diana K said...

So pretty, Kathy! I love Leaf Prints, even though I don't own it. Yet. I live on the East Coast, famous for its Fall scenery and, alas, I am not looking forward to autumn. :)
