Go On An Adventure

Today's card was another from my Inking Idaho on the Road Display.  Just one more project from the display is left, and you'll see that on Friday! 

This fun card, showcases one of the Adventure Trio Dies from Fun Stampers Journey.  The Ombre background, with the reverse ombre die cut were sponge inked using one of the True Color Fusion (Hybrid) Inks.

I realized quite quickly that I had a pretty consistent color pallet going in my display, so I continued with that in the creation of this card.  I added a background paper from the Sunday Adventure Prints, and I increased the color contrast, by sponging on some Cool Pool to the top of the background.  Then I die cut the balloon element, and sponged the same ink on that, but from the bottom towards the mid point.  This ombre/reverse ombre technique makes the two elements work together, while still allowing contrast that allows the die cut to pop.  I stamped the sentiment onto the die cut panel, and then added some angle cut banners to my background, before adding the die cut.  A splattering of Sparkle Silk was added, and then I attached some of the map printed hearts that I had fussy cut from a scrap of the Sunday Adventure Prints (the hearts are on the back side of the map paper used for the background).
