ONE BACKGROND DIE, TWO OHMBRE CARDS - Simply Potted Succulents

       

Hello, Stampers!

    I'm still here.  Just doing some other forms of papercrafting, gel press, acrylic paints, etc.  This idea is certainly nothing new and not original to me (as usual).  It's really easy peasy to create this 2 4 1 background with the background die from the Potted Succulents Dies set.

    First, die cut the background using Basic White or Shimmery White CS - you can use a bit larger piece and cut it down later.  Then, adhere your die-cut to another piece of Basic White or Shimmery CS with some Washi tape along a couple of edges.  Then the fun begins.

    Ink up one of your blending brushes with Pool Party Ink and brush in swirls at the bottom third (or top, doesn't really matter) of your die-cut, which is now a stencil!  Feel free to peek to be sure you have enough color laid down.  At the middle, ink up your brush with Bermuda Bay ink and add that color, overlapping to blend in with the Pool Party.  Last, ink up your brush with Pacific Point, apply and you're done!  Remove your "stencil."

    Trim each stenciled/die cut layer to 5-3/8 x 4-1/8 and attach to a card base.  Adhere the die-cut piece using fine-tip or Multi Liquid Glue along the very edge.  You can add a little extra in the middle, where it will be covered by your potted succulents.  I stamped the succulents in Memento onto Shimmery White CS, colored with Blends and Markers, and mounted them with Foam Adhesive Strips to give them a little extra height.

Happy Stampin’!
