Moxie Fab: Card Creations: The Ombre Challenge

Have you seen all the fun challenges going on at theMoxie Fab Blog this week?  This challenge is for the Ombre technique.  "Today's trend focuses on a hot technique--ombre. What is ombre you might ask? Well, ombre is when color graduates from light to dark on a surface. This look can be created in numerous ways--from using ink to cardstock to fibers to paint to embellishments such as buttons to patterned paper. The point is to create a graduated color on a paper crafted card."

So I gave it a try...I had stamped these flowers from the PTI Text Box set awhile ago and realized they would work perfectly for this technique...light to dark.

All things PTI except twine:  Twinery twine
paper:  rustic cream
stamp:  Text Box, Beautiful Butterflies
ink:  pure poppy, summer sunrise, harvest gold
dimensionals:  dots from HERE...Deanna Dean's etsy!
