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

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!

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:

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 :)
