Here is my take on the Ombre challenge!
I had a few ideas in my head. I decided to go with this one. Getting the ombre effect with copic markers on this design took me forever. A lot of work but that is how I work. I take the harder route to the easy one always lol! So to make this card, I used Hero Arts Tea Flowers stamp set to stamped all the images in black on white card panel. Then I used BG11 BG13, BG15 and BG34 to colour the background to get the ombre effect. Blending large area with copics is not easy especially if there are to many nooks and corners. Like I said I spent about 20 minutes get it looking good. I LOVE the effect especially with the details on the flowers and leaves.

Then I used the largest and the third  largest rectangle dies Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set to emboss on the stamped and coloured panel. Embossing gives finer details on the coloured panel and also frames the die cut sentiment. The die cut sentiment is called Painted Thanks from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut three using black cardstock, stacked and glued together. Brushed the die cut with Wink of Stella clear pen. Finally embellished with gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
