Ombre ~ A graduation exercise!

I LOVE Ombre!!!!

There is something sexy, vibrant, sometimes subtle, and magical about a slowly moving color palette.  Whether its from light to dark, or color to color.  I just love watching it move!!
In this card I used Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, and Blush Blossom.  These three colors compliment each other well.   After embossing with black embossing powder, the contrast made me happy!

Note to self:  when working with Ombre:  start with the lightest color and work up to dark.  *especially when coloring with markers!  And don't be afraid to blur the lines!  Use dark, medium and light, but then be sure to overlap to create that soft, smooth transition.  I used a sponge to rub the ink on Whisper White paper.

Hope your day goes from good to GREAT!
