02 Jun 2024 6 Comments

Welcome to the June challenge at Pinkfresh Studio! You all created such amazing projects for last month's challenge, and we can't wait to see what you create this month! This challenge is for ALL papercrafters - including scrapbooking, cardmaking, minis, journals, notebooks & more!

If you haven't checked it out yet, we featured our Top 3 Cards & Layouts, plus the prize winners from the May challenge on yesterday's postWho knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along!

June's challenge is Ombre &/or Gradients!

We can't wait to see the ways you use ombre and gradients on your projects, whether by adding them as a design element, a background, or through ink blending or pattern paper - the possibilities really are endless!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Waterfall, Slumber, Sparkling Rose, Mimosa, Lemon Whip & Soft Lilac.

As always you can use just the theme, just the colors, or use both for your projects! Here is some inspiration for you from our amazing team:

I recently found this challenge and am glad I did as I love Pinkfresh Studio products and have quite a few. I love ink blending and used it as a gradient background on my 2nd card for this challenge.

I don’t normally think “rainbow” when I think ombre or gradients, so I went a bit rogue on this one. I do absolutely love the rainbow look on the Magnolia Pattern background, but I also made three more cards in shades of purple, pink, and gray. There’s no wrong way to color this beautiful floral!

I love ink blending so this challenge was a lot of fun to incorporate with the Never Give Up stamp set. I used a gradient of different pinks but with quite a bit of contrast. Stencils make coloring an image so quick and easy.

Great color palette to practice our blending. Thanks for the great ideas Pinkfresh!

Such a great theme and I love all the DT inspiration! I went with my new ink shades in the green-yellow group of colors.

I wanted to create a card using paper from the Delightful collection. I also used floral ephemera from the Flower Market collection and a stamp and die sentiment from Extra Special Sentiments. I chain stitched my circles to add brightness and a focal point for my sentiment .
