MIO Challenge: Ombre

 Hello and Happy Fall!  I created today's card for the My Inky Oasis Challenge for October and the theme was Ombre.  Typically we see Ombre as a transition from light to dark or dark to light in a single color and is also seen with two colors, one dark and one light.  Purple is my favorite color, so I used three shades transitioning from dark to light using the ink blending technique over an embossed background and incorporated a heat embossed vellum image with a die-cut sentiment to complete the project.  A scattering of sequins finished off my ombre masterpiece!  Here is the link to my video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock
Sizzix Butterfly EF
Distress Inks: Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac and Milled Lavender
Unity Everything kit
Lindy's Stamp Gang Midnight Violet
Doodlebug White Glitter cardstock

To enter the challenge, make a card using Ombre as the theme and upload a picture to the October Challenge Album.  You can enter as many times as you'd like and it will run 10/15/16 through 11/05/16.  The winner will be announced on 11/11/16.  Good luck everyone!!

 Full disclosure: I did not set out to make this card.  It was actually an experiment that went really right!  I used the Peony Coverplate...
