So I learned about the Ombre look a little over a year ago and have LOVED it ever since. My husband giggles because he says I say ombre in a funny way. I’m sure I do!!! 🙂
Webster’s Dictionary defines Ombre as having colors or tones that shade into each other; the color is graduated from light to dark!
Here is my latest ombre creation – of course with the Work of Art Stamp Set! The images in that set make the ombre effect so amazing and simple! Also, I only had to get out ONE stamp pad for the look! I just inked up the image and stamped on the bottom, middle and top without re-inking! This technique really gives you endless colors with just one ink pad! So the next time you are thinking you need a lighter blue or green or pink than what you already have, just stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and then stamp on your project!
This card uses Coastal Cabana and Whisper White cardstock! I stamped with Coastal Cabana and Basic Black! With my Baker’s Twine, I wrapped it around twice and tied a double knot. Then I took a needle and frayed the ends so they would look more full and puffy! Super Cute!
