Just Us Girls #184 - Technique Challenge

JUGS184 Verve photo JUGS184picA.jpg

This week's challenge is brought to us by Vicki and the technique she has selected is the Ombre Technique.   As you can tell from the challenge image, it is a variegation of colours from lightest to darkest in the same colour family.  Or you could even do it with different colours if you like.  It's up to you - just have fun with it :)

I used my PTI heart die on various shades of pink and then got a little cocky and did a two shade "U".  What can I say, I was on a roll {grin}.   Quick and easy card, but love the effect!

The rest of the  JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chic of the Week.  

As a SPECIAL SURPRISE, Cindy from over at Dare 2B Artzy is sponsoring this challenge!
Yep, that's right - the winner of this week's challenge will get to choose the stamp set they want! Thanks so much Cindy -- so generous of you!
