Singin the blues
Morning all! Hope you are all having a chilled out weekend. I just love the Hero Arts/Studio Calico Lattice Background. When my Spectrum Noirs arrived I knew I had to try them with this stamp. The stamp is white embossed and the gaps coloured with shades of blue. Ombre is a popular technique at the moment and I would like to try other colours to recreate this card in different shades. It's so easy to do this technique with the Spectrum Noirs, the numbering system makes it so easy to step up the gradient. I added the Marianne Designs die to draw the eye along the gradient and sprayed it with Crafters Companion Spray & Sparkle Silver - hard to see the shimmer in the photo. The sentiment is computer generated.
