PTI 8th Anniversary Day 8 - Blue Skies

Hello friends.  Still a day behind on the challenges over at Papertrey Ink for their 8th anniversary celebration, but I couldn't not play with yesterday's challenge, which was to make a blue ombre effect card.  I'll apologize for the quality of my photo right up front, but it is SO hard to get a decent photo when it is gray and cloudy outside!  So use your imagination, and try to picture the white part of my image being shiny.  Take a look:

I started by stamping my images from "Meadow Greens" with Versamark and heat embossing with clear embossing powder.  Next I used distress inks (Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass, & Salty Ocean) to create my "Blue Skies" background.  Really love the emboss resist technique and how it makes your images just "pop"!  My sentiment is from "Boutique Borders: Sympathy" stamp set. 

LOTS of beautiful Blue Sky entries over on Nichole's blog, and you can check them all out right here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
