 Papertrey Ink's current Make it Monday#153  is about watercoloring and when watercolor and challenge are mentioned together ..I got to play !

I have used the ombre technique before.. here, here and here ...some I have embossed and washed over and some stamped a sentiment over the wash, either way they always look good. Today I thought of revisiting the embossed version shown by Dawn McVey. She  has a lovely video on background wash and embossed sentiments  and here is my take..I applied a wash over the embossed sentiments and once that was dry,  stamped the florals for some added interest.

Stamps- PTI-Year of flowers, Meadow Greens .

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a great week ahead!
