Second Spring

Hello and Welcome
Meet today's card.  
I wanted to try my hand at creating an ombre style card using the wonderful colours of Fall.

So here's what I did to create my card. 
  • I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I positioned my Marvelous Rectangle Mask over the panel, then the Orderly Leaves stencil over that as I wanted to be left with a clean, crisp white border.
  • Next, I got out some Distress Oxide inks in the Fall colours.  Using a blending brush, I started at the top blending in some yellows (Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber).  Next, orange (Carved Pumpkin), then finally reds along the bottom (Candied Apple, Barn Door).
  • When I was happy with the blending, I removed the leaf stencil but left the mask in place and splattered with my black Posca Pen.
  • I removed the mask and placed the piece into my Misti to stamp the sentiment with some Versafine Clair Noir ink, then clear heat embossed it.
  • I mounted the panel onto some red cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
