MIM- Ink Pad designs!

Hi everyone!  A quick post and a few pictures to show what I created for the current Make It Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink. The challenge is to use an ink pad directly on your card stock for a pattern. Sounds easy right? Well it took me a few times to get it right:)

I decided to go with an ombre look but after 'coloring' it the first time, I felt it looked a bit plain so I took a new piece of card stock and stamped the images of the Mehndi Medallions and then again created the ombre effect by rubbing the pad directly onto the paper.  I still wasn't satisfied so I spritzed the whole thing with water and achieved this watercolor ombre effect! Finally! To finish this baby, I added a stamped die cut, a shiny bow and a few pearls.

Here is a close up of the medallion behind the rubbed on ink. I was afraid it would really smear with the spritzed water but it still looks beautiful!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
