Hot Summer Ombre

Distress Ink Ombre Emma Godfrey Stamps Nikki Acton
Happy Tuesday! Are you playing over at Country View Crafts this month? The theme is Hot Summer Days and I have created an ombre effect for this card using Distress Inks - lots of blending and avoiding finger prints!
Having created my background I heat dryed and stamped Emma Godfrey's flowers in archival and removed some of the ink with a water brush.
I then added ink back using the same three colours.
I added some highlights with my white pen, a little dragonfly from my stash and mounted my card.
