Default F4A129...Ombre, mon amie!...(8/10/2012)

F4A129
Ombre, Mon Amie!

The French word ombré means "shaded," and in fashion it refers to pretty much anything that starts out one color and then slowly morphs into another. From nail polish to pantyhose...it's out there. So...let's see how you can recreate it on a card.

There are just so many ways to recreate it: papers, inks, markers. Show off your style today!



Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Good challenge, Dawn...with all the ombre being featured in fashion. Thanks for posting on Thurs. night. I have a busy day tomorrow and wouldn't have been able to participate.

I'm not sure if I understood exactly what to do. My thought was to use shades in the same color family? So ... here's my Hello, Hello, Hello card:

It took me all morning (I had lots of other things to do this morning), but I finally got my Ombre card finished. Good challenge, Dawn!

This was a fun challenge! I very might well make another one... I combined it with the Something Old,Something New and made a blue wedding card. It just seemed a natural fit. Thanks for looking

A quick thank you to Jeanne for some inspiration. I loved your card I saw in the gallery just when I took a peak today. The layout caught my eye
