Shades of Green

Another reason to use some Distress Stains. 
 I found two online challenges to use an Ombre color combo, Virginia's View and The Friday Mashup.  Of course, I reached for my Distress Stains to create my look. 
 I stamped this amazing doily image from Mama Elephant using white ink and white embossing powder on watercolor paper.  After I spritzed this lightly with water, I started with the lightest shade of green Distress Stain and then added the medium shade and then the darker shade.  The water helped these shades of ink to flow together a little bit.  That middle small doily design was stamped the same way and colored with the darkest green.  I punched that out with a circle and added it to my card with foam tape.  
 This fits the current Virginia's View Challenge for Ombre.
The Friday Mashup challenge is also about Ombre.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
