Shadows & Shades- Laughing Lola

Have you had a chance to look at the Autumn/Winter Idea Book yet??  What's your favorite product?? 

One of the 6 new My Reflections paper packs, Laughing Lola, is the featured one in my card today!  It also features Shadows & Shades- the technique for the Heart2Heart challenge this week!

How FUN is this paper!  I love the jewel tones :)

I used the new mini stamp set: Heartfelt Birthday Wish, stamped in Black.  Then I took my Gypsy markers and colored the top and bottom of the words in the light shade and middle section with the darker shade.  I did not do this with "perfection", but I let the shades blend together :) 

I also sponged Lagoon Ink onto our Color Ready Seam Ribbon.  I did a fun technique with the yellow'ish paper- I made my own washi tape!  (I'll post a tutorial soon!!) 

So the Shadows & Shades technique is also called Ombre!  Check out this video from CTMH, where they show you how to create the Ombre look using Liquid Glass & Reinker!

Great idea to color the letters using markers like that. Will have to keep that in mind. :)
