I wanted to play along with the CAS-ology Ombre challenge so I pulled out some of my Distress Stains.
I used watercolor paper and started adding various shades of reds and pinks. When the larger portion of my coloring was dry, I used a dot stencil to add more subtle shades. That amazing sentiment is from a stamp set by Tim Holtz.
I used a flower from another set by Tim Holtz. I embossed it with Platinum Silver and colored it the same with various Distress Stains. I wanted the flower to perfectly match my ombre background.
Here is the CAS-ology challenge.
Here is the Paper Players challenge for a simple watercolor look.
And it fits the Simon Says Wednesday challenge for Clean and Simple and that is also where I purchased my stamps. LOVE their great selection of good supplies.
