Blended Ink Backgrounds

Hello crafting friends! 

Is any one besides me having their days mixed up after our holiday on the 4th? Yesterday felt like Monday to me, my days are all off.  Feels like Tuesday today. Turns out any day is a good day to pop in with a project for Make It Monday! 

Betsy's Make It Monday #327 is all about Ombre Watercolor Backgrounds. (see her video HERE sharing a fool proof and easy way to make blended backgrounds.)

I've got two cards for you today. 

For the first, I blended shades of pink and then washed them with a damp thick brush. After it had dried I used the Stencil Basics: Dots to add tone on tone design.

My second card is clean and simple, using yellows for the background. I added tone on tone stamping with two or three leaf images, and spattered white paint to add texture and detail. Well. I did get a bit carried away with splattering the paint.

For the flowers on both cards, I used the 2108 Anniversary Set: Mixed Bouquet, trimming out the blooms with my scissors. 

I will be uploading this soon. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
