Hi everyone, Richard here.
I hope you are enjoying my Fusion Vibes promotion this month! With 20% off our True Color Fusion Ink Pads you can stock up on your favorites and play with amazing background techniques. The great thing about the FSJ color family, I designed it to include different shades of standard colors. Instead of just orange you have a few orange-ish hues at your disposable. Today, I’m going to show you how to use those hues to your advantage to create a gorgeous desert sunset.
You’ll need the following supplies: My Everything Stamp Set SS-0339| Arizona Trail Stamp Set SS-0493| Arizona Trail Die Set DI-0353| Journey Circles Die DI-0039| Pineapple Smoothie True Color Fusion Ink Pad* IP-0014| Summer Days True Color Fusion Ink Pad* IP-0042| Rich Coral True Color Fusion Ink Pad IP-0052*| Tangerine Fusion True Color Fusion Ink Pad* IP-0005| Citrus Cooler True Color Fusion Ink Pad* IP-0048| Black Licorice Ink Pad IP-0041*| Journey Color Burst pencils JM-0077| Whip Cream Cardstock CS-0040| Beach Ball Cardstock| Fusion Ink Sponges JM-0014| Cranberry Bliss Silk IP-0094|
*These ink pads are 20% off this month!
Step 1: Use a Fusion Ink Sponge to transfer Pineapple Smoothie Ink to the top half of your cardstock panel.
Step 2: Die cut a Journey Circle to use as a mask. Give your cardstock panel a slightly darker hue with Summer Days Ink (only transfer color to the top half of the panel as shown). You want to keep your circle part light (it will be the sun later). The mask will make sure you don’t get any of the darker Summer Days Ink on that spot. Summer Days will blend perfectly with your Pineapple Smoothie to create just to right golden sunset color shade.
Step 3: Complete your sunset with the darker shades of orange / red in the middle and bottom of your cardstock panel. Inter-mix the dark hues of Rich Coral and Tangerine Fusion with the lighter shade of Citrus Cooler and your previous Summer Days and Pineapple Smoothie. Play with these color until you have the perfect sunset just the way you want it.
Step 4: Finish assembling your project. You have your sunset, but give it that desert theme with cactus images from the Arizona Trail Stamp & Die Set.
Enjoy the Journey,
What are your favorite True Color Fusion Ink color hues?
