I've been really busy lately with some family stuff and visiting friends in Charleston. I finally had time to watch more videos in the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class from Online Card Classes. I was inspired by the Ombre Repeat Stamping Love You card by Kristina Werner.
Using Paper Smooches Borderlicious chevron like stamp, I created an ombre like background using Memento Dew Drops (rose bud, angel pink, lulu lavender, grape jelly, danube blue, summer sky, bamboo leaves, new sprout, dandelion, cantaloupe, and tangelo). I stamped the Borderlicious stamp in reverse directions for each color. I used the Paper Smooches Scripty Saying hello stamp to add a greeting. I heat embossed the hello stamp with silver Ranger embossing powder. I also used the silver embossing powder to mat my flag because I didn't think it stood out enough. I added a couple of silver embossed details to the background image for a little fun. It came from the Technique Tuesday Incredible stamp set.
