Make it Monday #241: Ombre Stencils

This is a remake of a card I did for the last blog hop. I liked the colour combination so much that I tried it again. I had some of the fern panel left over, so used up the bits on this card. The flowers (Vintage Linens) are a brighter pink this time, though, because I used watercolour paints instead of Pink Lady re-inker. For the ombre-stenciled background, I used a Tim Holtz stencil "Dot Fade" , which is a type of ombre, in that it goes from light, scattered dots, to larger dots on the bottom, which I sponged on using Lovely Lady ink. It's a light pink ink, which is difficult to see in this photo, but they're there! The sentiment is from the "Swoosh" dies and stamps. Thanks for looking!

  12. Every time I see a card with those gorgeous flowers, I say to myself... "Self, why didn't you order that Vintage Linen set?!" Your cards is a beauty! Love the gold embossed flowers and the soft pink ombre stenciled background. I particularly like the way you watercolored the flowers.
