Make It Monday #188: Stamping Ombre Backgrounds (Post #2)

I'm back again with another stamped, ombre background. This time I used Super Stripes, as the stamps in this set are long enough to stamp on the diagonal. I started in the middle, then did progressive colours on both sides. The focal point is Phrase Play #6, and since the background is like a rainbow, I chose the sentiment from Up, Up and Away:Sentiments, selectively stamping the parts I wanted. I finished it off with an enamel dot, resembling the sun. Not sure I liked that part, but it's done, now...

This next card is not a stamped, ombre background, but a watercoloured "rainbow", instead. It is a "get well" card for our great-niece, who wasn't feeling well. The daisy die is from SSS, and the sentiment is again, from Up, Up and Away (PTI). I hope you can see the sun's rays, from the Sunshine Impression plate, on the yellow, background paper.
Thanks for looking!

  3. Great job on both cards, Kathryn! I almost used Super Stripes for my ombré, but changed my mind. Hope to try this technique again when I have time.
