OMBRE & Doodlebug!

When Melinda suggested we do a layout in "monochromatic ombre" for Doodlebug, I wondered what she meant. I had never heard of "ombre" before. Well, I did know it meant something with "shade", but I just couldn't figure out what that had to do with scrapbooking. As Melinda's email didn't work at the time, I decided to ask the girls at the Nook and of course they could help.

Here's what OMBRE means:

Ombre: n. A French term meaning "shaded".
Usually a multi colored stripe, with colors graduating from light to dark.
 I then knew what I was going to create! And here it is:
What I love about Doodlebug's papers is that there are so many different papers but they all match! The designs, the structures, the colors ... everything! and except all those papers, you also have twine, stickers, diecuts, glitters ... in all the same colors! So creating a monchromatic ombre layout was easy peasy!
And the close-ups:
