Ombre colours ......

Made this card for a challenge over on the City Crafter Challenge Blog whose theme is 'Paint Chip Inspired'.

I took a 5 x 7 inch white card blank and then cut a rectangle from more white card to fit the left half of the card blank.  This was then diecut with a curvy stitched die to produce for two pieces.

I took a paint chip in green and punched 6 flowers with a Martha Stewart punch.  Each flower was centred with a clear dewdrop.  I took the left and piece of diecut card and drew a curvy line with a black micron pen and stuck the flowers over this as shown.  Both the left and right diecuts were then mounted onto the card blank with foam pads leaving a small gap between the two pieces.

The sentiment (Papertrey Ink) was stamped on white card with Versafine black ink, trimmed out and mounted on more foam pads as shown to finish the card.
