Ombre Fun

This week is technique week with JUST US GIRLS!    This week we are doing the Ombre Effect.  Ok I have to admit I had no idea at all what this was.  I looked it up and it's pretty cool.  Bascially it's using 3 (maybe more I suppose) shades of the same color starting with the lightest to darkest, kind of creating a fade look.

I wanted to try and use my Dylusions sprays for this, so I played a little and here is a tag I came up with:

I know it doesnt' seem to show very well but in person it does fade show that "fade" better.  I started on the bottom with: Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine, Squeezed Orange.  I know the first two are more yellow and then an orange but I thought it worked and look pretty good.

Be sure to stop by the Just Us Girls team to see their amazing creations:

This week we also have wonderful prize from a sponsor this week: Dare 2B Artzy!  This week's winner will get to choose a stamp set!

Very cool! I love it! I tried using inks and watercolor paper first, but I was too impatient I think and it wasn't working! Love the spray idea!

HA! I think we are all questioning our "fading" -- this tag turned out awesome with this effect! Love the idea of using sprays!

I was also critical of my fading...the more I tried to make it light the darker it Your tag came out great! I can see the gradient effect wonderfully!
