Ombré Background with Watercolor Markers!

Hello, all! Happy Friday! Today I have both a card and envelope for you! This card and envelope set uses the new Spring Flowers 4 stamp set from Simon Says Stamp’s latest release. In fact, this blog post is part of a blog hop celebrating the release! YOU CAN SEE THE RELEASE HERE!



(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

For both the card and envelope, I created an easy ombré background in Bristol paper by scribbling wide stripes of color with Karin Brushmarker Pro markers and then sweeping a wet watercolor brush over them side to side. This is such an easy way to create an awesome ombré gradient!

After the backgrounds were painted, I stamped flowers and leaves from the Spring Flowers 4 stamp set in Versamark ink and applied white embossing powder.

For the card, I accentuated the flower by applying water and then picking up some of the color with a paper towel.
