Simon Says: Ombre

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the  Stamp-It Challenge and Hop and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week we are challenging you to


Definition: Ombre is a French word for a color with a shaded tone or varying tones. An example of ombre is a color that fades from dark gray to light gray.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used my favorite colours of blue and aqua to make an icy Christmas tag.

Christmas is only 87 days away and this year I intend to have all of my tags made ahead of time, well that is the plan, haha ;-)
 I used  Stormy SkyChipped SapphireBroken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink Pads to create an ombre effect background and love how it turned out. I might just save this tag and use it for a gift to myself!

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

Not quite sure that blue is a traditional Christmas colour choice, but love the tag you have created here. The bauble is definitely traditional :).Thanks for joining in with our 'Traditional Christmas' challenge this week, and good luck

You did a great job on this and it got me all giddy for Christmastime! I especially loved how you made the elegant crinkle ribbon on the ornament, then made a more rustic twine tie for the tag itself. They look great on the same project, so thanks for the inspiration!

Wow, what a beautiful tag! Love all the great details!
