Valentine’s Day is approaching, do you need to make a quick and easy last-minute Valentine’s Day craft? Here is the 30 minutes valentines craft you can make, the Ombre Heart Painting. Inspired by the idiom “Love is Blind”, I adapted the Ishihara Plate design to paint the surrounding of the heart with dots to create the ombre color tone of pink and gold. Note: Ishihara Plate is used for color blindness test.
I did it on a 6″ x 6″ canvas but you can always adapt the method to paint the Ombre Heart on other materials like clothes, bags, cards, wooden plank, bottles, glass jars etc.
