Gradient Background for Greeting Cards with Oleksandr

Hello everyone. Today it’s Oleksandr Azarov here with you and I have prepared a small tutorial on creating a postcard with a gradient background, using Lindy’s Sprays to add some beautiful color.

Let me show you how to create this.

We start by creating a frame. To do this, I fix a sheet of watercolor paper with paper tape on a glass mat. We also need wide brushes.

I spray on the fixed sheet Blazing Sun cover the entire surface of the sheet.

I decided to make the gradient diagonally and therefore the next spray (I chose Cattail Copper Brown) I apply on the corner and blur the borders with a wide brush. Drying with a hairdryer or embossing tool.

The next step was to stamp the hydrangea flowers using black ink and embossing powder and then, colorize the image.

For coloring, I chose: Delphinium Turquoise, Bayou Boogie GoldCattail Copper Brown .

Now we dry everything well, glue it onto the base of the postcard using foam tape and add an inscription. Our postcard is ready.
