Light to Dark

 Today's challenge is to make a card that has light to dark colors.....this technique is also called Ombre which is defined as "graduated colors from light to dark on a surface". Starting with the lightest shade of a color (any color), use light, medium, and dark shades of the same color to create a background or main image.

My cardstock is shades of purple, my flower die cut are shades of black to white and even my pears are 3 different shades of purple. My vase is clip art from the net printed and cut out.

Hope you like it.
