Make It Monday #188: Stamping Ombre Backgrounds

Laura Bassen had a wonderful example of Ombre Backgrounds on Nichole's Blog this morning. I love hers, and would love to copy it, but chose instead to try something a little different, and Christmas-y. I used the small triangle image in PTI's Ombre Background Builders and many different, green PTI inks to make the gradation from light to dark, stamping each colour twice, reversing the triangles each time. I then die cut the Text Block:Christmas from Pure Poppy cardstock and glued it over my background. A few trees cut from the evergreen border die adds some interest, as does the Wink of Stella pen over the sentiment. This whole panel was popped up on the white card base. I'd like to give this a try with other colours, when I have more time.
Thanks for looking!

  2. I almost used this stamp from the Ombre set. I thought it looked like trees too! I couldn't pull it off like you did though...had to scrap it. Great job! :)
