More Ombre Effect

I have been wanting to play more with distress inks to create Ombre effect on cards. Oddly enough, it was this photo of Ryan Gosling that gave me the inspiration...
Yes, that Ryan... he rules :) 
 you color my world
It's amazing how two little stamps can do for a card like this! I used the jar stamp ( Hero Arts'
Picnic) and the "you color my world" stamp (Clear and Simple's Craft Room). I am entering this card to Moxie Fab World's Ombre challenge!
 I didn't turn the mason jars into lamps like Ryan suggested, however,  I did make them appear to have the light effect from the lamps....Yes ( insert-->cheeky smile!)?

Hope this post make you smile! Your visits to my blog mean SO much to me!
Thank you for coloring my world!
