Ombre!






Time for another challenge at Alphabet Challenge and this time it's O for Ombre - meaning a colour gradient from dark to light or vice versa.
I've gone very CAS for this tag, I first stamped my image,  Penny Black' Dreamy' and the Tim Holtz sentiment and heat embossed with white powder.  I shaded first with Chipped sapphire, on 1/3rd of the card, then Faded Jeans on the middle third and lastly Tumbled Glass which was sponged over the whole tag blending the colours.

For more inspiration head over to the main blog where the rest of the team have some great makes to show.

That's if for now, thanks for your visit and I hope you have a great weekend.
