It is Tuesday and so I’m sharing a fabulous technique with you!!! This week it is the Ombré Look!
I’m not going to lie, when I first heard of the Ombré Technique I had no clue what it was and had to look up the word Ombré. Ombré is a French word meaning to shade. In art it means beautiful color gradation!
So there you have it! And now I’m loving this technique! You all know I’m a huge fan of bright colors and whats even better….lots of Bright Colors! Color is an amazing thing! It sets a mood, shares a feeling, and can even brighten your day. Here are a few samples using a variety of ombré techniques. It’s an easy technique that offers impressive results.
The Birthday Card above is my #1 Man Card right now! You can make that card in shades of blue like I did or shades of green, or neutrals! And as my husband says, no ribbon on a man card but Linen Thread is okay! So all in all the perfect Man Card and it uses scraps of cardstock too!!!!! (For other Man Cards, check out this post!)
This little 3″ x 3″ Mini Card is super cute and perfect for a little Birthday Gift Tag or pick me up card to pass along to a co-worker! Quick and simple to put together and again a great use for scraps! I used the 1″ Circle Punch, Modern Label Punch and Word Window Punch! Oh how I love my punches!
This last card here was created with Watercolor Paper! All you do is pick up some reinker with an Aqua Painter and swish back and forth on your paper starting with the lightest color! How fabulous is that?? Then the image was heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits! And isn’t this saying just perfect?!?!
I hope you have enjoyed this technique and try it out in your next stamping project!
