Artsy Wednesday: Ombre

 
I wasn't feeling too creative so I just did a plain blue version of a green ombre I did before, then covered it in flakies... BECAUSE FLAKIES.

Light to dark: ulta3 Spring Shower, TBN unnamed blue, TBN Rain on My Parade, BYS Royal Blue, ulta3 Midnight. Flakies are Australis Speck-tacular (it's a very Australian line-up!)


I like how you can see the effect of the flakies go from subtle to vivid as the base gets darker - it's what I explained in this post, in action!

My previous ombre:


So, as promised, since Sofie left us, we've invited another blogger into the Artsy Wednesday ranks - meet Kaka! She's Welsh, and her blog is here... we're expecting great things from her! (no pressure :P)
