Bonjour....Ombre Style

Happy Wednesday Evening!

I have another card to share.  I know...shocker!  *laughing*

This card is for the Newton's Nook challenge.  

I created an ombre background with Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.  I chose these colors because the stamp set is Paris themed..and I always associate pink with Paris.  It's the City of Love, right?

I used Canson XL watercolor paper for the panel.  I ran out of distress watercolor paper and found that this paper works beautifully with distress inks.  

After I heat dried the panel, I stamped (and heat embossed in gold) the images and sentiment from Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set.  

I cut the panel with a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die.  

I adhered the panel to a card base made from PTI Select Stampers White card stock.  It's my favorite card stock to use for card bases.  

To finish off the inside, I stamped another sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and the hearts in Spun Sugar Distress Ink.

  1. This card is gorgeous! Such a lovely pink ombré (I agree pink is just right for Paris). The embossed gold gives it the perfect elegant touch! Thanks for playing along with our Inky Paws Challenge!
