Longing Tilda

Good morning! Today is Saturday and that means it's time for another challenge at Crazy for Challenges and Make It Colourful.  I combined these two challenges for my card today.  At C4C our challenge is to use dies on our card. And at Make It Colourful, we are to colour our image with smooth gradients. The idea for the smooth gradient is to have a transition in the different shades of colour really smoothly from dark to light with no lines showing. Hope that make sense?

I used this technique mainly on the window going from dark brown to light brown as smoothly as I could blending out the lines. Hopefully you can see that ok. Also, the dies I used on my card are the Magnolia doohickey swirls die which act as my flower vines around the window and I also used a spellbinder die behind the window image.

Here are the details:

Ink: memento ink and copics (E59, E57, E55, E53, E51, E11, E00, E000, R85, R83, R81, RV11, RV10, R20, R24, R22, YR23, Y000, YG67, YG63, G21, G20)
Images: Make It Crafty window and Magnolia - Tilda
Papers: Bazzil CS and Magnolia DP
Dies: spellbinder, Magnolia doohickey swirl die, MS butterfly punch, MIC chipboard corners, pearls, WOC flowers
