I am going to enter this card into the Craft Stamper challenge, you have to use the ombre technique somewhere. I have used the Romantica stamp set by Chocolate Baroque for this card. I started with a piece of white card and stamped the bottle on the table stamp with black ink in the centre. Cover with a mask then colour it with Adirondack sandal ink. I inked up the verse with Versamark ink and stamped around the edge then embossed with clear powder. To get the ombre look I used Adirondack inks, sandal, hazelnut and distressed vintage photo. I started by adding more sandal then went on to hazelnut starting at the top working my way down. Keep adding colour until it's dark enough. Now use the vintage photo to darken the very top. Buff over the words to remove the ink from the embossing, they stand out much better now. Take the mask off and colour the central image in red ink with a sponge, adding more intense colour around the table and bottle etc. Layer on to first red card then kraft card. The base card is cream coloured. Stamp the sentiment on to white card and colour red then layer as before. Attach as shown. Quite a simple card but I do like the colours, might give this to my husband for valentines day.
Thanks for looking
