Ooops…gold would have been easy to incorporate, too. But now, any of you who don’t add it will have company!

SU Simple Stems with Four You

Sara has a sketch challenge for us this week and a chance to “ombre” it up with the

Friday Mashup # 156.

1. Create a project using the “Sketch”.

2. Create a project with the “Ombre’ Background Technique”.

3. Or Mash it up and create a project an “Ombre’ Background & The Sketch”

If you are new to the Ombre’ Background Technique you can see a Tutorial on the Ombre Background Technique here

I have to confess I read ombre background and forgot to watch the tutorial. Don’t forget to watch it! We would love to see what you come up with this week.


I did do an ombre background with my sketch though! I chose three similar colors- Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Pool Party. This was tricky to photograph with the tilted frame- every which way I took the picture, it looked wonky but in person- it is bright and symmetrical…lol.
