Strong Card

Welcome back.  I appreciate y'all coming back to see my second card for today.  This one uses a technique called Ombre.  I haven't done this one before so it was knew to me.  I like the way it turned out though.

I used Colorbox Cat's Eye chalk inks for the background.  I started with the lightest blue and ended with the darkest. I took the ink pads and swiped across the card stock to create the flow of color. I pulled a couple of flourish stamps from my stash and inked them with Memento Espresso Truffle ink and stamped them randomly.  I trimmed down the card stock  to fit the A2 dark blue card base made from Gina K card stock.  Before adhering the back ground to the card, I tied a piece of sheer navy ribbon around the bottom.  The sentiment is from A Piece of Heart and is matted on a piece of turquoise card stock and a piece of gray card stock both from Recollections.

That's it.  Very CAS.  I like the look of the Ombre technique and think I will try it in different colors.

I appreciate you guys stopping in again.  I have one more, so please feel free to check that one out too.  God bless y'all.
