Rounded Diamond Thank You

Here's my card for the current AEI♥U ombre challenge. I went with shades of green on my card, using Avery Elle's Rounded Diamonds set for a clean and simple design.

Rounded Diamond Thank You-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery ElleI've had this set for a while, but I've had trouble using it.  It worked perfectly for this design.  I used the set's medium rounded diamond here, starting at the top of the white panel with the darkest green ink.  As I moved further down the panel, I used progressively lighter shades of green inks until I reached the bottom of the panel. 

I stamped the "thank you" sentiment from the Modern Leaves set near the bottom of the panel in kraft pigment ink, overlapping some of the rounded diamonds.   The pigment ink gives nice, opaque coverage over the solid green images.  I finished the design with some green enamel dots scattered around the panel.  The stamped panel was adhered to a green card base, matching one of the lighter colors on the panel.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Avery Elle Rounded Diamonds and Modern Leaves stamp sets, Tsukineko Memento Olive Grove, Bamboo Leaves, New Sprout, and Pear Tart inks and Memento Luxe Toffee Crunch ink, Studio Calico green enamel dots

other:  white cardstock (Michaels); Limeade Ice cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
