Ombré

The definition from Wikipedia:

“Ombré/ˈɒmbreɪ/ (literally “shaded” in French) is the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.[1] It has become a popular feature for hair coloring, nail art, and even baking, in addition to its uses in home decorating and graphic design.[2]”

This feature can also be used in papercrafting too, especially cardmaking. Take a look below.

This butterfly stamp is from Close To Heart and perfect for this look.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink pens to colour them in. I wanted to use bright colours so the butterflies would stand out.

Here is the finished card. Each butterfly has lighter and darker colours AND each butterfly is slightly different from each other!
