Papertrey Ink Make it Monday 241




Hello everyone, 
Today I am playing along with the PTI Make it Monday challenge.  
This weeks challenge is to make an ombre stenciled background. 

I chose this color pallet as inspiration. 
You can find more ccolor recipes on the PTI Blog by clicking here.  

Color-6


I started by die cutting my chicken wire cover plate to make my stencil. 
Then I used these colors to blend the ombre background. 
I used the same colors to stamp the tulips. 


I layered my card and finished it with some twine to add a touch of a natural element. 

I'm loving the tulip stamp set.  I think I may have to buy some colorful tulips for my table this week. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
Have a wonderful day!

  16. Awe, Joyce, I'm going to remember this color recipe because it's ideal for this technique and all the beautiful floral stamps and dies. Your tulips look so real against your ombré stenciled background. I haven't even pulled my set out yet. Love your Enabler List!
