Ombre background

Welcome to another challenge with the crazies team on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

Frances is our hostess and our challenge this week is .....

Definition - a french word meaning "shaded". Ombre is the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.

The ombre technique has become very popular in stamping over the past few years. Use this technique in some way when creating your card this week.

Here are a few links to YouTube videos for inspiration:
Ombre Stamping- Jennifer McGuire 
Easy Ombre Backgrounds– Jennifer McGuire
Ombre Background Stamping– Yana Smakula
Misti 101: Ombr̩ StampingРJustine Hovey

I first stamped and white heat embossed the hero arts cosmos background. I then sponged the distress colours, spun sugar, ripe persimmon, abandoned coral and candied apple. I die cut the panel and matted it into a card and added the die cut Happy Birthday and some gems stones.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
