Rainbow with Gradation/Ombre Stamping

Hello friends!! It’s Channin here and today I’m sharing one of my favorite MISTI techniques, gradation/ombre stamping!! I use this technique to create a beautiful fading rainbow background featuring stamps and dies from Pinkfresh Studio. 

To create this card I first stamped the background using the Pop Out: Diagonal Stripes Cling Stamp Set. I started with the #6 stripe stamp and inked it up with Coral Reef ink and stamped it onto a 8 1/2” x 5 1/2” panel of white cardstock. I then partially inked up two thirds of the same stamp in Passion Fruit, a slightly darker red ink and stamped the stripe again. I then finished the stripe by partially inking and stamping the last third of the stamp in Berrylicious ink. I repeated this process for stripes 7-13 using three different inks (a light, medium, and dark) for each color of the rainbow. 

Once I had finished stamping the background I then cropped the panel down to an A2 panel and adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. I then created a thin white rectangle frame using nesting rectangle dies and adhered the frame to the card front.

Next, I die cut a sentiment out of vellum and white cardstock using the Love You the Most Die. I then adhered the white letters onto the vellum shadow layer and then adhered the sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Simply Sentiments: Hello Stamp Set onto gray cardstock, trimmed the sentiment down to a stripe and adhered to the card front with foam adhesive. 

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!
