Love the Ombre trend going on now in fashion, home decor ... even food. Have you seen those incredible Ombre layered cakes all over Pinterest? This morning at a Mom's group meeting they mentioned Ombre hair (dark roots, lighter as you get to the end). So I thought it would be fun to do an Ombre Mother's Day card using the Color Q Challenge colors.
For the second mustard stripe I used the same mustard paper as the first stripe, but colored it with a gray Copic marker. Otherwise, I wouldn't have had two similar papers in that color family.
As long as we're being trendy ... how about some chevrons? I did the black stamped image first, and then shifted it up slightly to stamp the orange/rust colors. Also took out the circle from behind the "O"because it was a little much. Maybe later I will swap out M-O-M for D-A-D since the colors seem more masculine. We'll see : )
Thanks for looking!
