Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peak - Four Feathers

I have some exciting cards to share! My delivery of some of the Holiday Catalogue items arrived yesterday and I was instantly inspired to create. As demonstrators not only do we receive a discount on our products, but we also get to order them early. This is where you ask yourself - why haven't I joined already? I am wondering why you haven't either. :-)

The Four Feathers stamp set caught my eye in the catalogue and I had ideas before it even arrived. The ombré look is so hot right now - if you don't know what ombré is the dictionary definition is - shaded or graduated in tone: said of a color.

So here are my Ombré Four Feather cards -

This first one is using Rose Red, Strawberry Slush and Pink Pirouette - 




This one is using Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry and the NEW Blackberry Bliss


And this one is Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay



I don't get to use my subtle colours much - so this was a great way to get the dust off them and get them out.
The technique to get this was using my markers starting with the lightest and then adding the darker colours. The washi tape I added a strip of while cardstock underneath. The size of the this washi was 1.6cm and it really made the colours pop and the black and white stand out.

If you have any other questions please ask. You won't be able to order the Four Feathers stamp set in Australia until the 28th September - but if you would like me to send you a free copy anywhere in Australia then click here. You want to make sure you have this catalogue in your hot little hands.

If you don't have the set of markers have a look at my marker club as it is a great way to get the whole kit on a budget and receive rewards.

Please Pin my cards if you like them and feel free to comment below as I love comments.
