JUGS Ombre & Sketch Frenzy Friday

This week's JUGS challenge is to use the Ombre technique.  This is a new one to me so I hope I have understood it.  I used the sketch from 5th April over at Sketch Frenzy Friday as the basis for my card.

I started by creating a strip of variegated blue cardstock using my Gelatos (Birthday gift) and a little water plus a couple of fingers! I then die cut using MFT Die-namics Retro Squares.

The card base was embossed with a Fiskars plate (almost forgot I had those!)  and then it was assembled as shown.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and was stamped with Memento Elderberry Ink and die cut with a Spellbinders die.

When I showed my husband he said it looked like a row of swing bins or petrol pumps - great comment on my creativity!
