Project 255: A touch of ombre


I was inspired by this week's Retro Rubber post to do a project featuring ombre. This girl stamp is relatively new but the Happy Everything is at least 4 years old - I've had that from one of my oldest sentiment sets.

The paper is blended with purples and blues to get the ombre effect, and the light purple strip also features a touch of ombre. I love how she just disappears into the darkness, it's ethereal and yet still pretty simple as a layout. 

The grey greeting is inked on the edge as well - once I start the ombre I just can't stop. 

This is my final post from the deep dark hiding spot I found in Claire's craft room. *Starts crying*
