When OMBRE met Babycakes!

I have gone OMBRE crazy! All it takes are 2 sets of Close To My Heart alcohol markers and a great stamp set. "A True Thank You" mini, is perfect!
I started with Lagoon cardstock as the mat for the Buttercup and polka dot patterned paper, from Babycakes. The gorgeous Whisper pattern is matted on Chocolate cardstock that I used our new scallop border punch on.

I coloured with Creme Brulee and Sorbet alcohol markers, starting from lightest to darkest, to create the OMBRE effect. Then is was Rosewood  embellishments and wooden Trinkets. I also added some Grey Wool Baker's Twine.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.

  3. Nancy,
    The lagoon paper is a surprise, and it really works on this card! I love it!!! What a clever accent to slip in there - so subtle but yet it adds SO much! Excellent work!
