Start by cutting the individual stencils from the transfer sheet. For this project, I used the “XO” and “Love” portions of the transfer.
Next, add a small section of Raspberry Paste and two small sections of White Paste on separate areas of a plate or palette.
Now, mist each section with water and blend a bit of the Raspberry Paste into the two White Paste sections to create a light and medium color for the ombre look.
You should now have three “watercolors” to use for the ombre paint technique – a light pink, medium pink and dark pink.
To create the ombre effect with the “watercolors” you’ve created, start by adding the darkest color to the very bottom third of the Heart Cutout.
Then, add the next lightest color to the middle section and the lightest color to the top. Be sure to paint the sides of the hearts also.
To finish the look, blend the colors where they meet to create the fade of color you want from an ombre paint finish. Let dry.
Let’s finish off the look with our Heart Patterns Transfer!
First, place your transfer on your prepared surface.
Next, use a Small Squeegee to apply a thin layer of Bright White Chalkology Paste.
Be sure to cover the entire surface and to wipe back any excess paste. You can put any excess paste back into your jar to use later.
To finish, peel back the transfer.
Repeat the same process for the other Heart Cutout.
Here’s the finished product. Isn’t it the perfect bit of Valentine’s Day cheer!!
