Inkspirational Challenge - Ombre

We have a great challenge today at inkspirational, chosen by our fabulous teammie Pia - ombre.

Aaagh! I had heard of ombre, I kind of knew what it was but I still had to pretend it was just for our followers that I needed a clear definition and here it is :Ombré is when the colour is graduated in tone eg. a colour that fades from dark grey to light grey. Of course any colour can be used on the project.

So this was a challenge for me, but one I'm glad I tried and I hope I've got it right.

I used a digi from A Day for Daisies and two sentiment stamps from Clearly Besotted.

One person who has definitely got it right is our brilliant guest designer Deepti.  

Why don't you give it a try and join us at Inkspirational?

I'd like to enter:

Your little birthday girl is absolutely A-DOR-A-BLE! Way to go with the ombre in her dress and on the balloons. So sweet! And, I'm honored to add: You've *made your mark* in a most delightful way! Thank you for sharing in the ATSM gallery!

I tried this technique for the first time earlier today. And if my next two or three attempts aren't going to look a lot better I think I'll consider ombré as nothing for me... I love how this looks, but it proved to be a lot harder than I thought, so for that I'm extra impressed by your card. Nice layout too and I love this little girl from ADFD

So envy of you, Marina! You've got the CBS stamp with the fabulous "Birthday" stamp! Did you use the gift card for it??
