Hi! Here's a card inspired by the Less Is More challenge 'Ombre' and the sketch for the Fusion challenge.

I masked the central panel and coloured the borders with ink dusters. I then added the flower stamps, coloured the lower ones with a deeper blue, and used a water brush with no ink to remove some colour from the flowers at the top. I used Nuvo drops for the centres of the flowers.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Less Is More: 'Ombre'
CAS On Sunday: 'Black and white, with one color of your choice'

Flower stamps from Crafty Notions
'Birthday Wishes' sentiment from Woodware 'Daisy Panel'
Adirondack ink pads: Aqua, Denim
Nuvo Crystal Drops 'Morning Dew'

Another stunning beauty for the Less is More gallery this week. I love blues and this is a perfect CAS-tastic design and an elegant use of ombre teamed with the delicate flowers. Love it. Thanks again for playing along Sarah x

I love this and how you reversed the ombre direction with the flower and the background. The ink lifting was a great idea here.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
