Ombre Sky

The Less is More Challenge this week is a colour challenge, 'Ombre'. My first thought was to use inks, but I decided to  use shades of blue card to make an ombre sky.

The sky is made from strips of card, die cut with one of the dies from the Lawn Fawn 'Puffy Clouds Border Dies' set.  I made a frame using the two of the dies from the Memory Box 'Stitched Squares'.  The frame and the Memory Box 'Hot Air Balloon' die cut are attached with foam tape.  The sentiment is an old wood mounted 'Funstamp', stamped in Versafine 'Majestic Blue'.  

I am joining in the following challenges:
