Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: ombre with Hero Arts

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: ombre with Hero Arts

For my card I've used  hot pressed smooth watercolor paper of 300grams ( 140lbs i think) and I've used Wilted Violet from the Distress inks line for the ombre background. I used the re-inker ink for this, to get the intense color wilted violet can be.
Dark at the top, fading to the bottom.I hiope you can see it on the photo, the ombre is pretty subtle.

I've used the Hero arts butterfly cling stamps and Versamark ink on vellum and then White embossed them with Hero arts white embossing powder.

Then cut them out, on the big one I chopped off the antennas, by mistake, so drew those in with a white pen, was more careful with the others. I've glued the butterflies to the background with a glue stick glue.
I stuck on some Hero arts rhinestones, few different colors and sizes.
I've diecut the sentiment from SSS (small hello) from glitter paper. Before diecutting I adhered some double sided adhesive onto the paper to make it into a sticker.
Mounted the panel with foamtape on the cardbase.
