Ombre of Color for Stampin' Fancy Friday

This month's theme for Stampin' Fancy Friday is super fabulous.  Anything Ombre is our challenge for March.  Now, I'm not sure I would call this a challenge as designing anything ombre is fun and gratifying. For my spin on the ombre theme I went with soft plum tones through to intense blackberry hues because they are at the top on my list of favorite colors.  

Here's what I did to create this luxurious, Simply Succulent card: 
  • Cut one 4 1/4" x 11" Crumb Cake card base and score and crease a top fold.
  • Cut two 1/4 sheets of Crumb Cake Cardstock.
  • Sponge brayer a blend of Petal Pink, Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, and Blackberry Bliss Inks in an ombre fashion on the front of the card base and both 1/4 sheets.
  • Use one of the 1/4 sheets to cut the background design using the Potted Succulents Dies.
  • Use the second 1/4 sheet to stamp and cut the succulents.
  • Layer the cut background to the card base.
  • Create focal point of succulents and add with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Cut "love you" from Love You Always Foil and adhere to card front.
  • Flick splatters of Wink of Stella.
  • Thin out a piece of Linen Thread by pulling one of the threads away, color it with a Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blend, and add it to the succulent focal point.
  • Add Champagne Rhinestones.
