Multicoloured Stamping for Colour INKspiration Challenge

This is my entry for the latest Colour INKspiration facebook challenge, an anniversary card using the lovely Sale-a-bration freebie set, Happy Wishes.

I’m not usually a green girl so the colour combo of Tranquil Tide, Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay and Sahara Sand really was a challenge!  That’s why I enjoy taking part in the group though, it makes you step out of your comfort zone and use all sorts of colours.  Anyone can join in, the more the merrier!

I used a really simple technique to colour the main sentiment with three different inks for a sort of ombre effect.  This short tutorial gives you all the details.

The background piece was made using the baby wipe swipe technique that I featured in my blog post yesterday.  So just scroll down to my previous post if you’d like to see the tutorial on that one.
