Ombre Background

Happy Thursday Crafty People!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week.  I have a fishy card to share today for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge, for the theme O for Ombre.

I started by making an ombre background using some distress oxide (blueprint sketch and salty ocean) and distree inks (faded jeans and shaded lilac).  I blended them together from palest to darkest before splashing with some water to leave some white spots and splashes.


I used the lovely furry friends stamp set (a recent magazine giveaway) for the sentiment and heat embossed this in gold on some navy cardstock.

I chose the gold fish from the Rare Earth Cute Critters stamp set.  It’s such a detailed stamp that I simply stamped it in Izink ink (honey) on white and orange paper before fussy cutting them both out and layering the orange behind to leave a drop shadow.


I mounted the ombre paper on orange before adding to the navy card.  The fish was glued on with some gold gem bubbles.


I hope that you like my fishy card!  Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope you’ll come back soon.

Bubbles for the male room challenge!

Hi crafty people!  How are you doing today?  Today I’m sharing a card I made for The Male Room Challenge which this time is “anything goes, optional twist beverages”.


I used a spotty stencil to ink and then heat emboss the white “bubbles” on the background.  Then I smooshed on some distress oxides ( cracked pistachio, blueprint sketch, salty ocean & twisted citron) and distress ink (mustard seed).  I mat and layered it on some blue card and added the sentiment from a letter it set.  The can is my interpretation of a pepsi can and it’s a die I’ve had for a little while but never had a reason to use it…. until today!

I hope that you like my fizzy card and thanks again for visiting my blog.  I love it when you pop over and say hi in the comments.
