Ombre Dreams

For my second card today, I finally put down on paper what I'd visualised since I first saw the challenge at Fusion.  I love that photo and knew I wanted to do a white embossed, sponged panel.


I white embossed the script image from Papillon and then sponged in an ombre fashion using Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Island Blue inks.  The little flower was cut from Audrey Blue cardstock and the edged were sponged before being put together.  A white enamel dot was put in the center.

I like the fresh and light look of this card, so the sentiment seemed to fit the look nicely.

Thanks for visiting.


Products used:

Stamps:  Papillon (Tim Holtz), Say it in Style (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Versamark, Tumbled Glass, Broken China (Distress), Island Blue, Audrey Blue (SSS)
Cardstock:  White, Audrey Blue
Accessories:  Floral Fusion die (SU), Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangles, White EP

Cheers
Karren
