CASology Ombre & Throwback Thursday!

Ombre is the cue word at CASology: Week 143. 

Funny thing is I was creating a birthday card for a friend using the ombre technique of stamping...  Or should I say 'my' technique of ombre stamping where I simply go from one ink pad to the next using at least three colors.  By starting with the lightest and graduating to the darkest, it doesn't do much in the way of ruining your ink pads.

Spoiler alert!!!!  Since it is a birthday card, and I don't want the surprise spoiled, anyone with a birthday in May should read, or look, no further!!!  No peeking!!! =]

 
A close-up shows my inks: SU Old Olive, then Distress Peeled Paint, and last a little old Studio G.
 
Starting with a Neenah base, I added a panel of PTI linen vellum... love the stamping on that vellum ... added  another little Basil parrot green belly-band. 

The star of the show, besides the sentiment from the same set, is a darling little stamp from Wplus9 called Spring Post Since it is an older set, I'll be adding it to their Throwback Thursday challenge as well! 

[Look at me - a two-fer!!  =]  Thanks for dropping by!

This is a beautiful card, and I really like how you got all those different shades of green ink onto your stamp. Fabulous design, and I'll bet that vellum looks even more amazing in person. Whoever receives this birthday card will be a lucky gal indeed. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Mouthwateringly delicious, Michele ... the green ombré against all that yummy white is so fresh and crisp! I'm thinking you might have been inspired by all those trees leafing?? Hugs, Anita :)

Those greens are so fresh and Spring-y, Michele.

Your stamped stamp is stamped the way I stamp (?) when ombre's involved! Need to keep my teensy stash of inks lasting as long as possible - and tainted 'light' colours do not make me happy! Your card, however, makes me immensely happy! Love it!
