A Day for Daisies Challenge #151 - Try A 2 Color Ombre

July Club Kit is out and features a collection of delightful queen fairies.  Mine is called Fairy Queen Ruby and she is brand new in the ADFD Shop!

I decided to try something new with this girl and used the an ombre look on her overskirt and sleeves.  I printed two images and fussy cut the overskirt and popped it out on the card to give it some dimension and the wings are colored over with Wink of Stella for shimmer.  The main image is die cut using Lil' Inkers Oval Stitched Dies; the background is an embossing folder from Anna Griffin; and "celebrate" is a Memory Box die.

Pop over to the ADFD Blog and look at the rest of the DT's creations.  You'll have a hard time choosing which new image you'll want to buy!
