Gorgeous Grunge Yippee Skippee! rs78

Take a glance in magazines or Pinterest and you will see a trendy look - Ombre. It's fun to stamp; just pick a stamp you like and stamp it in various degrees of the same color. Or in my case, various tones of similar colors ;)


Using the scratched line looking image from Gorgeous Grunge, I used (from the top of the card to the bottom):
  • Soft Sky
  • Pool Party
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Bermuda Bay
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Pacific Point
I also stamped the splattered dots image with Coastal Cabana. The card base is this color and the punched flower is a combination of this color and Pool Party. Created using our 1-1/4" scallop circle punch and some paper snips, the flower is easy to create. For the how-to, check out this previous post.

Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Yippee Skippee!, Basic Label (retired)
Colors: (listed above)
Tools: 1 1/4" scallop circle punch, Big Shot, Framelits - Apothecary Accents
Extras: Candy Dots - Brights, Jewels Basic Pearls, JBP Large
