Do You "Ombre"?

Happy Friday!
I need to finish up Thanksgiving cards before I can really go all out with creating Christmas cards.  And admittedly it's been tough as we actually had SNOW the other day - ugh!  I decided to turn to the most recent issue of Paper Crafts Stamp It! mag for some inspiration.  I don't normally like to spend that much for a magazine - in fact even the woman who cashed me out at the store where I purchased it commented on how expensive it was!  But it's full of 66 different stamping challenges and I thought it would be fun to challenge myself as I work on holiday cards.

Under the color designs category one of the challenges is to create an ombre effect.  So I grabbed 6 Stampin' Up ink pads:  So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Ruby Red and Bravo Burgundy and went to town:

The wheat image is from the Stampin' Up set Wetlands and the deer stamped in SU Close to Cocoa ink are from Papertrey Ink In the Meadow.  Sentiment is SU.
Other Supplies Used:  Papertrey ink rustic white cs, Creative Impressions twine, MFT banner die, DCWV pp, gelly roll pen

Since this fits the current challenge themes of  both Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday Challenge Blogs I'm going to pop this into their pools.  Hope you all have a creative weekend!

Hoping for a creative weekend, alright--2 rough days at work. You've started me off with great inspiration, Robin! Love the look of ombre but never would have thought to use it for a stamp like this. Wonderful Thanksgiving card!

I haven't done it (you know how late I am to jump on trends - it took me months just to know what they were talking about - ha), but you have it mastered! This is simply stunning and what a work of love! A lovely design, dear gal.
