And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Awesome Ombre

Hello, dear friends and happy Saturday!  I love seeing all the gorgeous cards out there using color gradients and while many of those are clean and simple, I still need a lot of practice with that style!  LOL!  I am; however, having fun with ombre techniques!


Creative Nuggets:  All stamps and dies are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  Purple and green distress inks were sponged over the embossed Boho Paisley Background, fading the colors towards the middle of the panel.  The Boho Background die cut was layered over the ombre background.  The sentiment from the Boho Faith stamp set was stamped and matted on Ovals and Stitched Ovals. A Fancy Foliage vine was sponged fading the colors for an ombre look.  The little bird and flowers were made using the Spread your Wings stamp set and the matching Birds & Nest Dies.  The colors for this card were inspired by the ODBD Shining the Light Inspiration Challenge.  Hope you like it!

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:


Thanks so much for stopping by…have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
Cathymac
