Incorporating ombre into your projects with the paper bakery

Hi , good morning!
I have a post up on the Paper Bakery Blog today and I would  like to share with you how I incorporate the ombre trend into my projects.  The ombre trend is very popular right now in both the fashion and scrapbooking industry.  Using their March Daylight Savings Scrapbook Kit I am going to show you two ideas to get you started.
To create an ombre effect with embroidery, start by choosing 3 or more gradual colors.  For my project I chose to work with white, gray and black.
I used a stencil to poke the holes for my project.  Then, I started threading them in order using the white thread first, and then the gray, and then the black.

Here is a look at the stitching and full layout:

I also added some simple stitching to my title.  Because I wanted the stitching to really stand out I kept the rest of my design modest.

I also created a card using the same ombre technique.

Because of the large title I decided to keep the card simple and just added two borders and machine stitching.
Thanks for stopping by today!
