Default WT545 - Awesome Ombre (8/20/15)

Hello everyone and welcome back to "Ways to Use It" Thursday! I love seeing all the different ways crafters have been using color gradients on their cards, so your challenge today is to create and use a color gradient or an Ombre Technique on your card.

Here is an Ombre Technique Tutorial right here on SCS!
My Ombre Board on Pinterest also has a few cards for your inspiration.

After you upload your card with the keyword WT545, come back and share a link here - that makes it easy for people to find your card

The WTUI team has some Awesome Ombre to get you started:

Sabrina - Simple Sympathy
Lisa - Thinking of You
Cathy - Boho Faith

Here's a link to the Awesome Ombre Gallery!


If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go 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.

I used watercolor paints to create my ombre effect and added a critter to combine this challenge with CAS.

I had an idea right away for this one Cathy! I wanted to play with my brushos again so I used them for my ombre effect.

You say ombre, I say paint swatch is the easy way. So that's what I did. Here's my card.

Hi Cathy, hope this is ok. I used the Ombre technique for coloring my lemonade. I used 4 different yellows to try to make a fairly smooth transition of color.

Here's another: F4A287 birds I think the ombre is a little clearer in this one, compared to yesterday's.
