Simon Says Stamp Wednesday "Ombre" Card Challenge


I've been just waiting and waiting for a challenge calling for an "Ombre" theme and so I was very excited to find this weeks

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Ombre" (January 13, 2016)

So this is a totally inspired create as I had this concept in my mind all along:

The first step of this was to lay down the Ombre background onto my cardstock with Three shades of Tim Holtz distress inks - "barn door" "ripe persimmon" and "tattered rose".  Next I whipped the rest of  this card together by using this pretty butterfly card cut which I believe is directly from the Silhouette Store.  I used a heavier card-stock.  After I got it all cut and knocked out the bits and pieces I decided that it was rather "flat" looking so I ran it through my Cuttlebug embossing it with a Chevron folder from We R Memory Keepers.  

I thought the little blossoms needed something in the middle so placed a little dollar store gem in the middle of each.  The final touch is this tiny "special" word stamp from Stampin' Up

I hope your eyes enjoyed my card today!

  5. Stunning card, very clever running it through an embossing folder and all those little gems just finish off the butterfly to perfection. Great blending of your colours too.
