Green Ombre Card using a Sponge Brayer on Laser Cut paper.

Hello there,
Today I have a card for you using the new Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Speciality Paper! What a mouthful that name is, right?? OK, so I think I'll  abbreviate it on here to just laser-cut paper, lol! As much as a pain the name is the actual paper is really lovely and so the other day I used some of the card front pieces with several different colouring techniques to make a few different cards.
I'm going to start with this leaf pattern design first which I added a simple and easy green ombre effect to using a sponge brayer...
The paper is a lovely vanilla on one side with the reverse being white. They can be used as they are and are just lovely like that but it's also perfect paper for adding colour to, too.
For this ombre effect I started by adding Garden Green at the bottom using the brayer then moving onto Old Olive in the centre and Lemon-lime Twist at the top. I did this all using the same brayer as you don't need to get a lot of ink on it, just roll the brayer onto scrap paper before moving onto the next colour. Add the panel to a Crumb Cake piece of card for a natural looking background.
 Layer onto black card and wrap with copper thread before adding to a Lemon-Lime Twist card base. Sentiment is from Colourful Seasons.
So, have you tried sponge brayers yet? They are so fun to use ;-)
I have made several other cards with this paper using different techniques so I'll of course share those with you over the coming days :-)
Thanks for looking today, I hope you have chance to craft this weekend!
