Hey Hombre!

Loraine gave me a sample of embossed card after she’d been playing with her new Stampin’ Up embossing folder and I immediately thought of honeycombs and bees:


I’ve had this honeycomb collection from Pink Petticoat for a while now so it was just crying out to be used on this project. I have a bit of a thing for creating fades/gradients in Photoshop (you should see the design work I do at work, I sometimes think an intervention is called for!) so it seemed kinda natural to print the pattern to this card front and fade it out to stop it detracting from the focal elements.

Maybe it was a fluke or maybe it was cos I’d read about the Daring Cardmakers challenge earlier that day and the thought had lodged in the back of my brain, who knows. I’d like to enter this for their Ombre challenge tho!


  1. The ombré effect on your card looks great! Well done ... and thanks for taking part in the Daring Cardmaker's challenge.

  2. Seriously lovely approach to the Ombré effect Jodpea! Love this colour combo too. :D Thanks for playing along with the DCM challenge. :)

  3. Way cooool!! I love your card. Great ombre effect and perfect overall style. Wow.
