Golden Ombre and Marble effects - Delicata inks.

4:00:00 PM

 The magic of gold and silver combined is truly timeless and classic - a wonderful play on metals. For this mother’s day card I used a combination of Delicata inks to create not only a beautiful stenciled Ombre effect, but also a lovely marble look on chipboard. The perfect combination for someone truly special
1. Ink a chipboard heart or shape by pressing gold Delicata ink repeatedly onto the chipboard. Move quickly onto the next step.

2. Cover the wet ink with a layer of clear embossing powder and then heat set using your heat gun.

3. Once the embossing powder has cooled down, lightly press a second colour of Delicata ink onto the embossed surface.
4. Heat the embossed image again. The powder will melt again and the wet ink will seep into the melted powder creating a beautiful faux marble look. Repeat this step with at least two more layers of ink and embossing - finishing off with a layer of embossing.
5. Create your background by panel. Secure a stencil to glossy cardstock. Use three colours of Delicata ink and stencil a Ombre effect onto the panel. TIP: Because the stencilled layer is so thin, the ink was dry in virtually no time at all with a quick heat set with my heat gun

6. Stamp the word ‘mum’ onto the front panel using Memento ink. Then adhere your Marble heart and finish off with some diamanté.
Technique TIP: Marbling with embossing powder and ink is a fun and easy technique. After each layer of ink, add a layer of clear embossing powder, then another layer of ink and another of clear embossing powder. Layer these until you are happy with the final look of the marble. You can also add some technique by stamping into the hot embossing powder for texture, or use a toothpick and scribble some texture into the hot embossing powder.
