T for Technique Challenge and Tea


The challenge 184 at Just Us Girls  this week is to use an ombre technique which is using graduating colors. The definition of ombre is the French word for color that is shaded or graduated in tone.  I remember having some beautiful clothing items in ombre many years the early 70's ...that I loved.  I found a blog Sweetly Scrapped that has a great post about the Ombre Trend and also has free downloads that I used to make some Ombre card stock in various colors.
 I made the above card with some of that card stock that I printed on white card stock to the size I needed for a mat. I stamped a GKD sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black  and embossed the mat with CB embossing folder Divine Swirls.  Since I was experimenting  with using items around the house for embellishments, I added a teabag to complete my get well card. Even the tag blends with the ombre colors.  Completed the card with a coral base and a white mat.  This is a more simple card than I usually make but wanted the graduated colors to stand out.
