Ombré Vert


a/k/a  Money Tips.  haha.  Needed green in my life.  I’ve been thinking to attempt this for a while. 

Ombré
French derivation. meaning shaded. It is used in relation to textiles (a) as an adjective to describe fabrics with a dyed, printed, or woven design in which the colour is graduated from light to dark;

shaded or graduated in tone: said of a color

Do you realize how difficult it is to find five shades of the same color family that GRADUALLY move from light to dark??!?!?! Try it. -_-  Still easier than creating the shades myself though.

I have three other color families to attempt.  Smile

        Cheryl, I still visit your blog every day looking for your new posts.. you’ve inspired me to open up my own blog.. I just need to buy a new camera first.. cuz mine stinks.. 😦 Right now I have my best nail art design on, I painted my nails “Guava” pink, then painted my tips “mango” orange…. Then I made yellow hearts and 2 accent yellow flowers with rhinestones in the middle and green leaves and green dots.. they’re soooo pretty… Let me see if I can get my camera to take a nice picture…
