Ombre Hello Card for Cheery Lynn Designs

Hello and good morning Cheery Lynn Designs Fans! I am back again with my last guest post for the Cheery Lynn Blog. (It is a sad day, indeed!)

I decided to give you a taste of Clean and Simple today, which is a newer style that I have been exploring lately. I am in love with the look of ombre, so I am giving you a "double ombre" card!

I used four shades of distress ink to create the blue panel. Once all the ink was blended well, I sprinkled on some water to create droplets. The blue is just stunning! To contrast, I used four shades of orange distress ink to make another ombre panel from which to cut the feathers.

I used the Chicken Wire Die to cut the chicken wire shape from white cardstock. I sniped some bits of the frame away with scissors to get this pattern. I cut the feathers twice from the orange ombre panel that I created. I used foam adhesive to stack the Feathers Die in the upper left corner. I tied on a loopy bow from black twine.

I cut the Hello Die die from a scrap of black cardstock and glued it to the card. I tucked two feathers next to the sentiment.

I love the stunning blue and orange combination, grounded by black and white! The beauty of this type of card is that you can sit in front of the TV and color ombre panels all day long, and then die cut Cheery Lynn shapes out of the panels all night long!

Thanks for looking! And a huge thank you to Cheery Lynn Designs for having me as the August Guest Designer. I had an absolute blast!
