Camp Create Day 4 + Bonus Bonfire - Monochromatic Magic & Awesome Ombre

There were two techniques shared on the My Favorite Things blog for MFT Camp Create Day 4 and Camp Create Bonus Bonfire and I tried  out both of them and am sharing them in today's post...while the ombre technique card came together very quickly,the monochromatic one took a while as I don't invest much in background stamps and didn't have any for this technique,so had to really think hard to come up with a design that I was happy with...

For the Monochromatic Magic technique, I chose a textured pink cardstock for the card base and die cut the top layer from white cardstock...then using my Misti and the candles from Make A Wish stamp set,I  covered the a bottom section of the candles with abandoned coral Distress Oxide ink and stamped it on the white panel...similarly,I used picked raspberry and worn lipstick for the rest of the candles and the flame...I used the abandoned coral shade again to stamp the hearts in the flame and used some glossy accents on them for a bit of dimension...

The sentiment was much easier to create...I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock and used the same shades of Distress inks and the mini ink blending tool to create the ombre effect on it.. die cut the sentiment again from white craft foam and adhered the two before placing them on the card...

I also added craft foam under the top panel before adhering it to the card base...I have used a few sparkling clear sequins to embellish my card...

The second technique was shared in the Camp Create Bonus Bonfire....it was great to learn how Stephanie created her cards using the ombre technique to create the background as well as colour in the images...I had already used Distress Inks for my previous few cards,so I decided to use some watercolors to create this card...

I started by creating the blue ombre background for the front panel of my card...I saturated the watercolor cardstock panel with water first and then started adding blue Peerless Watercolor slowly from the base upwards so that the colour lightens toward the top section...once dry,I die cut this panel and adhered it to a plain white card base...

On a separate piece of watercolor cardstock,I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Fancy Flowers stamp set using black onyx Versafine ink and then heat embossed them using clear embossing powder....I then used the same technique as the background panel to colour in these images for an ombre effect...

Once dry,I die cut them using the coordinating dies and adhered them onto the card front...I adhered one of the flowers using some adhesive foam for a bit of dimension...

From the leftover piece of the front panel,I stamped and die cut the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using some craft foam underneath...to embellish my card I have simply added a few Nuvo morning dew clear drops...
