Less Is More - Guest Designer

Hi everyone! Today I am excited to be joining the LIM girls with their new challenge - OMBRE. Happy Little Stampers is sponsoring for the month of January and Sarah was kind enough to offer me a Guest Designer spot :) Thanks for having me!

Here is my card -


I can't say that I have really tried ombre prior to making this card. I started by embossing my sentiments which are from the HLS Simply Said set. I then blended Broken China, Salty Ocean, and Faded Jeans Distress Inks from top to bottom to create the ombre look. I sprayed a little water into my hand and flicked it onto the panel. I've never done that before either! I have seen this technique with the distress inks and flicked water for years so I am glad that I have finally done it!

See you over at Less Is More!

  2. Love the rich ombre on your card, Kylie - that water splattering technique is always so fun and effective! The white embossed sentiment really pops too. It is great to have you as GD at LIM this week :)

  8. What a gorgeous and sumptuous colour you chose for the ombre Kylie! Really can't believe you are a novice at the technique because your blending is awesome! A stunning example. Love the ink splatters too as they add so much textural interest. Thanks so much for being the LIM guest designer xx
