Sunday Febuary Spotlight technique: ombre background

This year I started something new on the
Every month I put a technique in the spotlight
and hope the group will try this technique too.

This month my eye caught the wonderful ombre 
background technique by Jennifer Mcquire.
She very often comes up with wonderful
easy techniques. Here is the video tutorial:



If you want to see it on Jennifers on blog,
go HERE for all the details and materials she used.

For the top card I used the background stamp, that comes
with the Lily stampset by Michael Strong.
As I do not have the words as shown in the video
I used a digital sentiment by Create with TLC.

If you do not have a large background stamp,
you can also use smaller stamps and stamp the
image all over the background panel, like I did here
with the smaller Michael Strong rubber heart stamp.
For the sentiment I used a rubber sticker and
a sentiment by Create with TLC.

Hope this technique inspires you too.
Thank you Jennifer for your idea.

Have a creative day!
