Tutorials
April 27-- Flower Arranging by Sandy
April 29-- Retiform by Pat

Let's get started !!

Continuing with my theme of ink backgrounds, today my background technique is Ombre.   The Mirriam-Webster dictionary describes Ombre as having colors or tones that shade into each other — used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.  I achieved this effect by sponging three shades of blue on the area between two masks. 


The MFP Stamp Shop sets I used for this card were Garden Art, Hello Butterflies, and Hydrangea.




Here's the Design Team:

Kren
Lois   (that's me)
