Isn’t this card just fabulous? That amazing ombre background is perfect for any type of card! You can create the look in many different colors or in a rainbow pattern….the possibilities are endless! Of course, I created this look with my SPONGE DAUBERS!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Sponger Daubers, Ink, Cardstock (that’s it) 🙂

You always want to start with your lightest color first. I used Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Garden Green, and Mossy Meadow! Tap Tap Tap with your sponge dauber into your ink pad and then you will go back and forth over your cardstock. Be sure to go off the piece of paper so that your color goes all the way to the edge. Also, by going off the paper, you will have your darkest spots off the project and not have this darker edge, lighter center look (unless that’s what you are going for). Once you have achieved the look you want, move to the next color. You will want to overlap a little bit so that your colors blend well and you don’t have a distinct line between each color. Repeat until you have used all of your colors. How simple is that? Now you can embellish or stamp on it. I used the new Epic Alphabet Stamp Set for the name Luke! This card is for my nephew’s birthday…..no worries he is only going to be 8 and isn’t a blog follower….yet! I then wanted to add in a few birthday greetings so I used the Happy Birthday from my Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and the Wish Big from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set! LOVE IT!
