Virginia's View Challenge #15 and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Hi everyone.
A quick post to share a card I created for Virginia's View Challenge ~ As I slide in at the last minute :) The theme for this June challenge is Ombre/Monochromatic, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for the theme Use Your Favorite Technique and/or Product (Ombre Technique and Distress Inks). 
Here is my card:




I started by masking a section of the card and inked it with distress inks (Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed) and Hero Arts Shadow Ink (Soft Vanilla). I stacked the poppy die cuts and the word die cut to add dimension, then stamped the sentiment and added a few sequins...and that was it!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~

This is so pretty. I really love your blended background, and the way you've got your die cut word crossing from yellow to white. I am pinning this one to remember to try for myself.
