Runway Inspired - Watercolor Ombre

Hello! Back again today with a card for the brand new Runway Inspired challenge! I had fun with this card that I made:

Here is our new challenge info - that dress looked like watercolors and ombre all wrapped into one, so I went that direction for my card:

I started off by using my Gansai Tambai watercolors to create the ombre background. For the flowers, I used Altenew's Lacy Scrolls stamp set, and did a special technique. I first inked the flowers with Versamark ink, then before stamping, I used two different shades of MFT dye ink to create the ombre effect. I stamped, then embossed with clear powder. Once they cooled, I fussy cut each one out. Added a sentiment from Birthday Greetings heat embossed on black cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll join us and play along - can't wait to see what you make!
