Yellow Ombré Roses Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight + BIRC #2)

Hi everyone! :o)

I hope you're all well and healthy, as well as your loved ones.

On Thursday, March 5th, 2020, was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Yellow Ombré Roses Birthday CardI didn't find time to share my card before, so I'm bringing it today. :o)

This Birthday Card (BIRC) is a second card I made for a Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2020 personal challenge. If you want to find out more about it, just follow the link provided. :o)

To make this card I CASEd (copy and share everything) a card that I created last year in January (here). On my today's card I went with different color scheme.

For my card I used stamps from two gorgeous Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Bloom' and 'All Occasions'.

How I made my card...

With some masking, I heat embossed in white roses on a watercolor paper panel. Then I ink blended the whole panel with two yellowish Distress Inks to create Ombré Effect. I splattered the panel with water, dried it and repeated the process until I achieved the color I liked. :o)

After drying, I glued the panel on a white top folded card base and coated whole panel twice with a clear Wink of Stella.

Then I Heat embossed in white a sentiment on a black cardstock paper and cut out a stripe of desirable size. Lastly, I glued some foam on the sentiment stripe, glued it on the card and my card was finished. :o)
