Ombre Valentine


Happy Wednesday!
I am playing along with the SSS Wednesday challenge today, Ombre, and the PTI Create Along with Us challenge.  I was greatly inspired by Amy Sheffer's use of graduated colour, pattern and layout!
My card was made by first using distress inks and an inexpensive water sparkly colour set from Michael's that I used for the front panel.  I then used an Avery Elle dotted die to emboss with and create a little frame.  I cut the patterned papers from my stash with a PTI heart die from the Heart Prints set and adhered in a somewhat ombre fashion.  Some of these are layered onto coaster board, some onto fun foam and some are just adhered directly onto the panel.  You can see some of the dimension in the pic below.  I then stamped the PTI Valentine sentiment from the Keep it Simple set in black.  Some paint speckles finish it off.
