White with Stripes

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with Hand Stamped Sentiments. Their sketch was so interesting that I had to give it a try. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Using vellum allows some of the color to show through. It seemed a bit too transparent
so I flipped it over and inked on some white and wiped some of it off.
It turned out very well.

The ombre background really surprised me. I shifted the strips from my die cut stencil
and came up with this! Look closely and you see the border is only one line. The second line fills in the center to create a very unique background.
Detail showing the embossed vellum and inlaid ornament. It is hard to see but the ornament sparkles while the inlay is white CS.

Well thank you so much for dropping in to spend time with me. I really enjoyed this project and I hope you did too. So until next time, take care, and happy stamping everyone!!

All the best,
Shawna

Great design. I like it very much! Ombre is beautiful, the color so deep and beautifully zmenia from blue to purple. It looks really amazing.
