Hey There

Back Again - this time for the current challenge over at
Addicted to CAS and it is one of my favourites -  Ombre!


My card was reeeeeeealy easy to achieve that ombre look
because of Altenew's  Ink cubes
where you get 4 little colour coordinating pads.
This one is Cosmos - 
Image result for Altenew cosmos ink
I went with the darkest to lightest.
The background stamping is from 
changing the stamps direction each time.
The floral image is part of the
Kaisercraft Secret Bird Collection Stamp Set.
I stamped my sentiment  from 
Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
then cut with Spellbinders Scalloped die.
Inked the edges but still was missing something
so lightly sponged inside.
Now I couldn't decide what card base to use.
Tried black - yuk! left it for a while and came back
and it hit me! Just use white and lightly ink
the background from the same stamp set. 
Here is what it looks like -

I used the lightest ink and I was happy.
Popped it and my cas card is complete.

Smarty pants. I never thought to just swipe a die cube across like this, Ina. It worked wonderfully for the ombre' technique. I love how you added a little of the color to the card base too.
