Gradient Sparks



Hi there!  Popping in on a drizzly Sunday afternoon to share a card for the latest Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  I'm also going to play along with the Moxie Fab World's Ombre Challenge.  I embossed the flower 4 times, coloured them with Copics and then cut them out and popped each layer up on Pop Dots.  I wanted some kind of flourish in the corner of the card so I was excited to find this patterned paper from Simple Stories' Documented collection.  Love when that happens!  Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Documented collection) Simple Stories
Stamps:  (Flower from Pretty Momma, Sentiment from Chit Chat) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black)  Tsukineko, (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Embossing Powder:  (Clear)  Ranger
Gems:  Michaels
Markers:  (R17, Y38, Y08, YG23) Copic

Great take on both challenges, Jen. But I never would have guessed this was yours - with that distressed background! Your talents are far-reaching, kiddo! Love it.

Jenny said...

..... And there was I thinking you'd stamped the flourish too !
Love the contrast between bold colour and vintage background :0)
