SUOC68 Monochromatic Ombre

Today's a bittersweet day... my last challenge as part of the design team at SUO Challenges.  I've had a fabulous time with the team, but after 2-1/4 years, it is time for me to move on to new things.  Today we have a monochromatic color challenge.

I've found myself clicking on quite a few cards by Chris Smith on Splitcoaststampers recently.  The ombre challenge on SCS intrigued me, and I found a really lovely one by Chris.  Here's my take.

While I was making this card, I was wondering around the house yelling, "OMBRE."  I think I might be driving my husband insane.  :)  I colored the flowers with one of my favorite techniques for this set, reinker spreader.

Stamps: Fabulous Florets, Bloomin' Marvelous; Paper: Whisper White, Shimmery White; Ink: Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Island Indigo, Midnight Muse, Tempting Turquoise reinker, Pacific Point reinker, Black Stazon;  Accessories: SAB button, Pool Party baker's twine, Sponges, Aquapainter, Stampin' Spritzer, Post-It Notes, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a gorgeous effect the 'ombre' is on a card. Just love it, esp. with these cool blues.

Heidi, you make the most beautiful cards! I love this, especially the colors. Thank you. We haven't communicated for March - uh oh!

I admired your card when it was first posted on the challenge blog but though it reminded ME of the the card I did awhile back, I had no idea when I'd clicked through today to read it's story I'd find a link back to mine. I'm very honored that you would find inspiration in my work and am in awe of the dreamy watercolor look you achieved in your beautiful rendition.
