Melissa shows us this week how to she does the ombre effect with dies and gelatos. You can click on the title above to see her example.
I made this card, and chose to use the Big Hugs die from Papertrey Ink, along with the Sunflower cover plate. I am in need of these kinds of cards these days.
I die cut the sunflower and only used part of it. I placed a piece of polk a dot design paper behind it and place it on White card stock base. I die cut three of the HUGS and colored with my Zig clean water colors brushes in the three shades of yellow for the ombre effect. The rest of the sentiment is from the same set.
This card is very bold and striking. After cutting the die out, I almost didn't use it. Instead, threw it in the scrap box where it landed on top of the designer paper. That was when I knew I had a card. Love it when a design jumps up and hits you in the face.
Thanks for dropping in to see my card today. I do appreciate the comments that you may care to leave.
