Melanie’s Ombre Technique

Melanie's Ombre Technique

After frustrating the participants of the last shoebox swap I attended with a card that took a while to put together, I created a very quick and easy one for the swap we’re having today. It all started when I first saw Melanie Muenchinger’s ombre technique. And then this week’s sketch challenge on SCS provided the perfect layout, with just a small oval tag near the bottom of the card. Sometimes it pays off to procrastinate in getting your shoebox swap card designed!

Thank for stopping by!

    I loved this card! I even mentioned to my table-mates how much I loved these colors together 🙂
