Shadows and Shades

Good Morning Everyone!

It's that time of the week -- a NEW challenge here at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!  This week our challenge was to create something using the theme/technique of "ombre".  What you ask is "ombre"?  Well, that's what we design team members wondered as well.  Basically it has to do with shadows and shades. 

Merriam-Webster defines it as:

having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark


Huh??  Well here is another definition AND a pic to give you a better idea:

Get it now?  What a challenging challenge this was for us all but I think you are going to LOVE what we came up with.  Here's our Guest Designer Hansi's beautiful card:

...And Team Twilight's twist on the ombre effect:

So there you have it ... OMBRE!!

Can't wait to see what you can create using this technique!

Don't forget to read the guidelines at the top left and use the 'linky tool' below with a link that goes DIRECTLY TO YOUR H2H CHALLENGE POST!  You must use some CTMH products in your project or your link will be deleted.  Thanks for understanding!

NOTE:    Usually our challenges end at the end of the month but because that would leave us such a short week for you to enter, we have EXTENDED the deadline to enter this week's challenge until SATURDAY, AUGUST 3RD at MIDNIGHT!

Let's see what YOU come up with!
