This month's Technique Challenge is Splattered Ombre Watercolor.

Remember, if you go shopping, use my discount code TJ10Stephanie for 10% off your purchase.

I used Peerless Watercolor Royal Crimson to create my ombre background.  Instead of splattering with Alcohol, I splatted with the pure dark Royal Crimson paint to get a darker contrast.

After the paint dried, I stamped it with the new Love Harlequin Background in Black ink.  Next I trimmed it down (and saved the trimmed edges) and attached it to a black cardstock card base.

I used one of the trimmed edges as an accent (and reversed the ombre for more contrast against the background).

I punched two sizes of hearts from the darker and lighter ombre painted paper and layered them on a punched black cardstock heart.  I finished with this lovely sentiment from the Love you More Set of 5.

I can't wait to see your version of the fun Splattered Ombre Watercolor Technique.
