A simple Thinking of You card

I must confess that this card is pretty much a straight scraplift from here.  Both the background and the sentiment stamps are by Hero Arts.

    Very fresh and clean Heather! I can almost smell the clean air. I like that you stamped the sentiment over the background that way and the simple addition of the very small butterflies and pearls is a very nice touch. Thank you for playing “Anything Goes” at our house!

    How did you do the variation of ink? I love the change of colors.

      Hi Jo,
      Use two or more colors of ink (I used three). Start with the lightest color first so that you don’t contaminate the lighter colors. Put the lightest color where you want it, overlapping where the next color will be. Then work from light to dark and add colors, overlapping the next area a bit to make sure that you have complete coverage. Since I used the same stamp twice, I cleaned the stamp in between so that I didn’t get the darker ink on my light ink pad.
