Blended Background Note

Hi, Lisa Lara here today sharing my
Blended Background Note using
I made this fun note card using one of my favorite techniques.
It is the Graduated Background Technique that you can learn how to do HERE.
I was inspired to make this card by Ardyth's beautiful Thank You's HERE.
So I started with my white panel 4 x 5 1/4.
I just laid down my colors using Copic markers (R24, YR02, Y17, YG21, B00).
 Here is what they look like blended using the Graduated Technique (the link is above). 
(I blended but was not satisfied so I used additional Copics R22, YR04, Y21).
Then I heat embossed the sentiment from Simply Noted Damask.  Lastly, I used the double stitched border die from Top Stitched Borders for my border and adhered to my black card base and embellished with Black Onyx Satin Sequins Mix.
I am also playing in Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge
