Pink Ombre

I have been having a lot of fun playing around with different techniques, and this card has a few!
I started with a piece of acetate, and cut it with the Spellbinders Cascading Hearts die to make my stencil.  I taped the stencil to a piece of watercolor paper.  Then, I took 3 globs of drywall spackling, mixing cranberry ink into the first glob, spreading it in the upper left corner.  I then mixed the second glob into the first, and dragged it further down the stencil, and repeated with the third glob.  I tried to use the remaining spackle to color the die cut, but that didn't work.  I found a coordinating piece of paper, and die cut the sentiment for the front, and a few small hearts to decorate inside.  

I am sharing this one with Shopping Our Stash - Monochromatic or Pink  (in honor of Leslie), and the Mod Squad Ombre challenge.  Big changes coming to Words to Scrap By - Words 2 CRAFT by!!  Join us January 15!!!


  1. Hey there Bobbi, this is a great job on the ombre effect and you used spackling paste too. So you have a lot of texture and it is very attractive. Thanks for joining us at the Mod Squad Challenge this week. Good luck and hope to see you here again.

  2. I find myself in envy of your creative skills. I would have never thought to approach this card this way you have, but I will keep it in mind that's for sure. You came through with a fantastic card. Sorry I've been MIA for commenting of late, trying to get better in this new year. Enjoy the weekend.

  3. Oooh! First, I love that you made your own stencil, and second, I love the ombre spackle hearts!Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!
