AAA Cards #110 - Ombre

Hello again. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I am back with a new challenge at AAA Cards challenges - Ombre.

Here is my take on the challenge. I used my misti, several colors of inks and Paper Smooches Positive Strokes stamp set to make these backgrounds. I used 3 of the paint stroke stamps in my misti and the lightest color (yellow). Then I added experimented with going to darker colors as I worked my way down the card (greens). I kept the stamps where they were and just moved my card stock up.

I stamped the sentiment with versafine black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I trimmed the panel down and added it to an A2 colored card. I had an 'oops' spot where I got some ink on the white space. So I added a sequin to cover it up. :)

I was having so much fun that I tried out some other color combos too.

Stamps: CASual Fridays - Whole Shebang; Paper Smooches - Positive Strokes 2
Green card inks:
Mama Elephant - sunshine; Ranger - Electric lime; Hero Arts - Freshly cut grass; Stampin' up - Garden Green
 Orange card inks:
Mama Elephant - sunshine, orangeade; Lawn fawn - sunflower, carrot
Blue card inks:
Hero Arts - Soft pool, Pool; Lawn fawn - mermaid, peacock
