It’s CASology time again, and this week’s cue is:
Now, ombre is about graduations of the same colour, or a three-handed card game played in Europe in the 16th/17th Century. Take your pick! 😉
Here is my take:
A very simple design. Beautifully photographed (not!) in a cosy jarrah nook. I have my eye on a portable light box. I believe Mother’s Day is approaching…
My flowers have been punched from water-colour cardstock that I washed in Cotman’s Permanent Rose water-colour paint. I hope you can see the graduation of colour intensify from the first to the third flower.
Which brings me to my layout for this week’s card: I have applied the ‘Rule of Three’ (not to be confused with the Rule of Thirds). The Latin phrase, “omne trium perfectum” (everything that comes in threes is perfect, or, every set of three is complete) conveys the same idea as the rule of three. While this particular phrase applies to written works, we all know that ‘threes’ work so beautifully in design! And given that we are delving into a little French for ‘ombre’, I couldn’t resist throwing in a little Latin also! 😉
The Design Team and special Guest Designer are so inspiring, as always. Please pay them a visit and say hi. We are fortunate to have Avery Elle sponsoring our Challenge this week. Details are at CASology.
As Spring is in the air for many of you, I am also linking this card to AAA Cards Springtime Challenge:
