L - Love stamp from Art Neko
O - ombre technique
V - vanilla embossing powder
E - (heat) embossing and embossing powder
I started by heat embossing the Love stamp with vanilla embossing powder onto some watercolor paper. I pulled out a brush, got it wet, dipped it into some rose colored ink and watercolored directly over the embossed area. I concentrated the color at the bottom and let it get lighter as I went up. That gave me a nice ombre effect. I let the piece dry for several hours, and then I adhered it to a rose card base.
I know that Valentine's Day is over, but this card could be used for an anniversary, an engagement, or for a just because I love you occasion. Think about all the other color possibilities you could use for this ombre effect. It would be fun to have a rainbow of cards like this!
