Celebrate Ombre Card


I have seen this sketch idea all over Pinterest land and at a local stamp shop and decided to make one using shades of green distress ink. I taped off the edges of the top piece with some temporary tape and started sponging with the lightest green on the bottom, then medium and then dark. I cut the sections apart with a die from Spellbinders, then stamped the sentiments from Stamplorations. I attached the three pieces with mounting tape to raise above the white card base, and added some leaf gems.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Crafty Friends, and the masking challenge at Live Love Cards.

Fantastic card design and love the varied colors used on it. Splitting the panel is really a cool look!
