Happy Heart Ombre Day
First I embossed light pink card stock with a heart embossing folder, and flipped it over for a de-bossed look. Then started building my layers with stitched scallop dies and patterned paper. My ombre effect is the intentional light stamping of the black rectangles, I also used 3 different pinks underneath (Angel, Bubblegum, and Passionate) to give a striped pattern, and used a heart stencil on top with Bubblegum Pink, and Passionate Pink. Watercolor Words by Stampin Up was used for the focal sentiment, as the stamp itself gives a bit of an ombre effect as well.
After I had the entire thing put together and finished, I smudged black ink from my finger, so as a last ditch attempt to save it, because it was right in the middle, I hauled out my MFT splatter stamp, and tried to cover it up. Success!
