Ombre Wings

I haven't joined in with Friday Mashup for quite a while, and when I saw this one I had a flash of inspiration, maybe it was my daughter talking about doing her ombre lipstick, or playing with my new stamps, but the two came together for this creation.

I used You've Got This background stamp colouring it with Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss Stampin Write Markers.  I used sponge daubers to smudge the areas where the colour joined.  I am not sure if you can see it but I added some loops of the gorgeous Metallic Gold Thread behind the butterfly to add just a flash of sparkle.

I added some gold sequins for my cluster embelishments.  I also added a little butterfly on the inside of the card from the beautiful Watercolor Wings stamp set, incorporating the various colours from the front of the card.  I sponged the Butterfly on the front to also give it an ombre look.

Happy Stamping
