Two-Tone Ombre Technique: Dragonfly Dreams

Aside from the gorgeous dragonfly and bumblebee images in the Dragonfly Details stamp set, there are several really great ‘other’ stamps.  Don’t be fooled – they won’t jump out of the box and onto your acrylic blocks.  Yes, I agree that the dragonfly will be the first stamp out of the package, but here’s a technique that will quickly make the random dots image become your next go-to from this stamp set!

The technique?  Double Ombre – or Two-Tone Ombre.  Ombre is a French term for shading of color from light to dark or vice versa.  You’ll see ombre everywhere these days – hair color, textiles, clothing, and of course stamping project. 

Usually only 1 color is involved and the ombre effect might be from light blue to dark blue.  But I’m going to share a Double Ombre Technique here – where two colors are involved.  Our colors are Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand, and the dotted stamp from Dragonfly Details makes this technique a snap.

This card is featured as one of my February Stamps in the Mail Club projects, along with 3 other Dragonfly Dreams ideas.  You can still request a kit if you hurry!
