Ombre Effect With DT Adela

Hello everybody, DT Adéla here with a new tutorial. :)
Distress inks are great for creating backgrounds with ombré effects. You can make intricate underwater scene or sweet clean and simple card like me.

Take white card base and apply ink with blending tool. Add few water drops and let Distress ink make some magic.

Use your diecut machine to cut out Hello beautiful sentiment. I used vellum for the "outline" and silver cardstock for the letters. I use double sided tape to make sticker and then I can press it directly to the vellum and gently remove cutting die. This is the easiest way to stick sentiment on the right place.

Use matte medium adhesive or nuvo drops to stick the sentiment on the card. Add a few sequins to make your project shiny.

You can also try to use dark cardstock base, because Distress oxide inks stays on dark colors as well.
