Color My World Challenge DSC#075

One current trend in hair, fashion, home furnishing, and crafting is the ombre look - a gentle gradation of colors.  I decided to try and achieve that look by sponging ink over a stencil using today's challenge colors of Tangerine Tango, Delightful Daffodil, and Gumball Green.  I diecut a piece of scrap cardstock using the Hexagon Hives die, and then sponged ink into the holes.  I finished it off by stamping a sentiment (retired), and some flowers from Summer Silhouettes and Secret Garden.  I fussy cut one of the flowers and popped it out with a Dimensional.  This was definitely a fun technique to try and would be really pretty with cool colors as well!  Happy stamping!
