Die Cutting Techniques

Ombre Inking: Don’t Give Up

I love this sentiment and this is a reminder we gave give ourselves daily! The Altenew Academy Course Tis The Season inspired me to create the ombre inked die cut…. I took it a step further and added loads of shine because I love a colorful sparkle pop against a dark background.

I created a shadow by using the negative space of the die cut and ink blended some white ink thru it. Then I simply off set the die cut a bit before adhering. That little extra something really took this simple layout up a notch I think!!!!!
