Hi and welcome to my blog. I am happy you stopped by today. I want to show you a card I made using the ombre technique. This was new to me but easy to do. Ombre means graduated color. I sponged darker blue to lighter blue colors on glossy card stock starting with the darker color at the top. I used an old stamp I had from Our Daily Bread to stamp over the colors. I used a newly purchased die from Spellbinders called Vintage Flourish Pattern for my music notes. I faux stitched around the die and the card.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fantastic day!
