Addicted to CAS - Challenge #177

It's time for a new code word to challenge you at Addicted to CAS

When I saw the code word, I wasn't quite sure what "ombre" meant. So, I looked it up in the dictionary (Merriam Webster) - having colors or tones that shade into each other, used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark. 

Here's my card

I started with Hero Arts Lines Background Cling Stamp Basic Grey, which I used to heat emboss with clear embossing powder. I trimmed a strip - 5.5" x 1.5". I applied distress inks (cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, salty ocean, mermaid lagoon) moving from light to dark with a water brush permitting the colors to blend. I then added the sentiment on a scrap of cardstock and using Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments which I die cut into a banner with Simon Says Stamp's Small Folded Banners die. I added some dimensionals under the banner to help support it.
