Good morning everyone, today is a mini release day over on Whimsy Stamps with several new fun and quirky stamps and dies. I may a fun slimline card featuring the newly released Giraffe Momma and Baby on a graded ombre watercolor background.

To begin my card, I cut a piece of watercolor paper and created an easy graded ombre watercolor background inspired by a brightly vivid sunset.

I used my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors and created a wash of several shades blending one into another to create a dramatic background for the Giraffe Momma and Baby.

Once I had the color intensity in the background, I set the panel to air dry and began working on coloring the images.

I created a frame using a Slimline Postage Die that complemented the brightness of the background and created a striking contrast.
