Magical Day goes Ombre

Hello there, welcome back - I've been a bit under the weather the past week and haven't had any crafting mojo, but after more than a full day in bed I'm a bit brighter today and decided to get inky - and the best thing that I find to do when inspiration is eluding me is to surf some challenge blogs, and that's just what I did, and when I saw the Colour INKspiration challenge I had a plan!

Here's what I was inspired to create using the new Magical Day bundle featured on page 37 of the Occasions catalogue

My daughters favourite colour is green, so as you can image she thinks this is just "epic".  I created the ombre strip on Shimmery white cardstock using a foam brayer. Next I stamped my little mermaid and coloured her with Bermuda Bay light and dark Blends (I so do love these!). I added some extra Wink of Stella, after all a mermaid should have lots of shimmer lol!

I applied Versa mark and used sponge daubers to apply Emerald Envy and Bermuda Bay to the "magical" stamp, then applied clear embossing powder then a quick coat of Dazzling Diamonds to make the sparkling sentiment. I love that the stamp set also has matching Framelit dies -no fussy cutting here!
