Happy Watercolour - ombre effect

Hello, I didn't get round to blogging yesterday as I spent the whole day with a thumping headache :( I’m back today though, with the first of the Happy Watercolour cards from my February card class.  I wanted a quick, clean and simple card and I hope this fits the bill.  To get the ombre, or colour fade effect I have inked the stamp once in Rich Razzleberry then ‘huffed’ on it between each stampimg without reinking.  I love that you can get a variation in tone using this effect.  We also made a coordinating envelope using the punch board as this is a bigger than normal 5 1/2 inch square card.


Here’s a close up, you can really see the detail in the graduated stamp.


I really hope that you like today’s quick share, come back soon to see what else we made with Happy Watercolour.  If you want to buy any of the items I've used you can click on the picture below and it will take you straight to my online shop.
