Ombre hugs

Hello. Here is my card for a few challenges today. I started off with the color challenge of Ombre over at Less is More.

The "sending hugs" dies are new from MFT, so that counts for the challenges over at Just Us Girls and Simon Says Stamps.

To get the ombre effect, I used shaded lilac distress ink and a round ink blender. Once I got what I sort of liked, I cut out the words then added some water splotches to the rest of the panel.

I took some seam binding and dyed it with the matching reinker.

My apologies for the dark photo, it's a nasty gloomy day outside. Perfect for doing chores and crafting but not for taking pictures.

See you soon!

Very pretty and it all matches - I'm going to have to try dying some ribbon to match.
