Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #241: Ombre Stenciled Backgrounds and colourQ challenge #331.

This week's Make it Monday technique over at Papertrey Ink involves ink blending and then using a stencil over the ink blended background.  Betsy does a splendid job showing us exactly how to do ink blended backgrounds without harsh lines.  Check out the wonderful video here.

I didn't feel like choosing a color palette so I used the gorgeous colors in the latest Colour Q challenge.

I absolutely love these colors!  In fact my favorite color is turquoise.  So I couldn't wait to work with this beautiful color scheme!

I sponged on my backgound colors from light on the bottom to dark on top.  I then laid a stencil over my background and sponged again the same colors over top the stecil being sure to over lap so the colors can blend.  I fussy cut the flower but had a die for the leaves.  I very rarely use a color other than green for leaves but I like this grey color for foliage in this card.  I added darker highlights to the inner flower petals using a grey (C5) Copic marker.  I also shaded in between the petals to give more depth using grey (C3) Copic marker.  The flower was popped off the card with foam.  The sentiment was heat embossed and a few blue sequins finishes the card.
