Ombre Rose

My friend Jane from the White Orchid sent me the most gorgeous Christmas card in teals and whites. She used this watercolor ombre background and it was so beautiful I decided to try it myself. (Hi Jane!) I'm not certain what method she used for her background, but I used a few drops of three different shades (from light to dark) of pinks and reds and then I used a very very wet aqua painter to paint from light to dark on water color paper. I love how the white rose die-cut pops out on the red background. Below I added some pearls to dress it up (and to cover a glue smudge, but you don't know that! LOL!)
