Challenge Spark (ombre technique)

This time Tara from Country Girl Creates challenged Jane from White Orchid and me to come up with a card using the ombre technique. I've loved this look ever since I saw it the first time. If you check it out on Pinterest, you will see many many ways to create it. Often a brayer is used. This time I chose to use the Stampin' Spritzer. I loaded it with plain water and then added a few drops of Tempting Turquoise re-inker. It's a first for me, so I kinda just winged it! (If winged is a word! Ha!) First I spritzed a little all over the paper and then dried it with my heat gun. I spritzed layer after layer, concentrating on the bottom right side. I heat-dried it every time. After I was done I sponged a teeny bit of navy in the darkest corner, embossed the stars on with the star embossing folder and then added the rest of my yellow embellishments and focal points.

Very cool! I like your 3D star embellishment too!

Those rhinestones really add a pop to your star! Plus I really like your idea of using a spritzer to get your color... It gives a different effect than the brayer.
