It's Saturday once again and I have to tell you, I'm very happy about that! What a week!
This afternoon I'm sharing the card I made for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge #208: Ombre Stamping and I'm happy to report I did not cheat!
In the video tutorial a Misti stamping tool was used to repeatedly stamp the image, exactly so, until the colors and effect were just perfect. I have not purchased a Misti just yet... I want to but, haven't yet so my first thought was to ink the paper and then die cut... I didn't though!
I just played around with inking tools, makeup sponges and even my fingers until I got the stamped images I wanted and then cut them out with the matching dies.
The stamp set I used, Birthday Style by PTI, provided all of the other elements that brought this card together!
