For my Ombre I used Distress inks (candied apple, abandoned coral and worn lipstick) but found it all a bit samey, so I also added Aged Mahogany at the top. My ombre turned out pretty much as the challenge badge and it wasn't meant to, I chose red to go behind my Heart sprinkle wreath from Simon Says Stamp.
I diecut it from 140lbs card and I also diecut the circle in the middle to make a window.
For my critter I used Gerda Steiner Valentine penguins, the sentiment also.
card, more and encouragement card, or I might have to keep it for a year
I colored my penguin with Spectrum Noir and Spectrum Illustrator markers and I used a bit of Nuvo Shimmer pen on the balloon. The white Sharpie wasn't being nice, I added it for a shine on the balloon, but it didn't dry quickly enough so I smudged it. See video ;-)
Mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase. I added foamtape to the penguin's head only and adhered the rest with tape runner.
