Teacher Thank You (8)
One final set of thank yous to give to one of Kate's teachers. This one was simple, but fun and full of graphic visual impact.
I masked each card front and sponged the main distress ink colour (that's Twisted Citrus on the middle-right card) before sponging the next shade near the bottom. As I worked my way down the rainbow (I started with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade), I realized that I would have a hard time finding a darker shade than Dusty Concord, so I started again with Mustard Seed and added Twisted Citrus. The only one I had trouble with blending was Twisted Citrus to Salty Ocean (middle right) - maybe the difference in shades was too great and I should have used Peacock Feathers or even Mowed Lawn as the darker shade.
For my sentiment, I lined up the letters from Stampin' Up's new Layered Alphabet on my MISTI and finished the 12 cards (two of each colour) quickly.
1) Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade
2) Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries
3) Festive Berries and Dusty Concord
4) Mustard Seed and Twisted Citrus
5) Twisted Citrus and Salty Ocean
6) Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord.
