Ombre Valentine

Hello Everyone!

Today I'm here with a cute Valentine themed card. This could be perfect for loved one who are away from you.  Here is the card 

For this card I have decided to go with Clean and Layered look. The background for this card is also created similar to my last card, if you did not get a chance to see it, you can view it here. I created the ombre background using Distress ink minis (colors mentioned in supplies) and ink blending tool. Then placing Simon Says Stamp - Trellis Grate stencil on the background panel, spritzed heavily this time with water on it using a spray bottle. Due to the reactive properties of Distress, color came off with the water creating background effect on the colors. Then using one of the dies from the Spellbinders - Shapeabilities Lace Hearts die set, cut out the focal point in white cardstock. Adhered it to the main background panel. Water-colored the tiny heart from the same die, coated it with Ranger Ink - Glossy Accents and adhered it to the background panel in the center using foam tape. Finally stamped the sentiment and adhered it to the background as well.

Did you all like it? I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding :-)
