I paired the fabulous Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Blossoming Basket stamp set to create this thank you card.  But, to make the gorgeous floral designs of the designer paper even more eye-catching, I brayered some colour with an ombre-effect...

Ombre is the French word for colour that is shaded or graduated in tone.  To get the ombre effect on this card, first load the Sponge Brayer with Blushing Bride ink and place the piece of Springtime Foils Designer Paper onto Grid Paper.  Roll the first lot of ink onto the scrap paper, just off the edge of the designer paper.  Continue rolling and gradually move the Sponge Brayer across the paper.  The ink will lay down heaviest at the edge of the designer paper and, as you move across, the ink will run out and the application will be lighter.  You may want to apply a couple of coats like this until you have the right depth of colour.

Springtime Foils Thank You Card

Check out the way that the gorgeous rose gold foil catches the light!  The camera really can't do it justice, you need to see it in person to get see the shiny foil designs.

I wanted the coloured Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper to be the focal point of this thank you card, so I kept everything else clean and simple.  To finish I added a stamped butterfly and used the Layering Squares Framelits Dies to create a polaroid frame in Pool Party card stock, which I stamped in Pool Party ink and then distressed and softened with sponging in Whisper White ink.
