First Try At Ombre


Laura has a fun video up on the Papertrey Ink blog. Her card is beautiful ! 

This will be a guy card, I need lots of those.

I cut and glued 3 layers of the letters .

Good morning! I woke up early so gave this Ombre a try after seeing how gorgeous Lauras card is.
This is my first attempt at ombre stamping, to be honest a few years ago I didn’t even know what the heck ombre was! I thought maybe it was Spanish for hat or something :) 

I am going back in the craft room to give this another try. 

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Love the colors you used for the Ombré challenge. Very nice masculine card. I actually LOL at your Ombré comment! That was me, exactly! Only I thought Ombré meant Friend in Spanish.

  4. Fantastic masculine card, Marybeth...I thought it meant "man"...like Hombre or something...I never knew either until getting into all this crafty goodness! I am inspired by your card! I wonder if I will have time to pull this off??

  5. Wonderful masculine card, Marybeth. I tried in greens and blues and it just didn't turn out so went for rainbow colors which I'm not that excited about either. Mine is for my brother. I had to chuckle with your "ombre" comment.

  15. Marybeth this is just beautiful and I love that you used blues for it, so soft and so so pretty. I have to tell you that you are in good company, I too have no clue what Ombre meant until Lil Inkers came out with their fanfare die. I can't wait to give this a try, thank you for the wonderful inspiration.
