The first thing I did was folded all of my card stock so that was card-size.

Next, take your paint and put them in your bowls. Slowly add water and mix the paint to ensure that it isn't just sticking to the bottom of the bowl. The paint can get messy, so put down newspaper or use the outside of an unused garbage bag to prevent paint from getting on your table.

Next, take the stickers and create whatever message you want.

Now you will take your sponge brush and dip it into your paint. For this card we want the ombre to start from the middle instead of the bottom.

The trick is to take enough on your brush for the darker portion and quickly spread outwards in a swiping motion. Do this until there is no more color on your brush.

Next, leave them to dry. To speed this step up, leave them in the sun or use a hair dryer.

Once they are dry, start peeling the stickers off of the cards.
