I decided to use just two inks instead of the three colors that the ink pads offer. For my first card I used Hero Arts Bubble Gum and Pale Tomato inks.
THIS stamp set. I inked a portion of the heart with the lightest ink first (Bubble Gum) and then inked the rest with the darker ink (Pale Tomato). I made sure to ink slightly over each color to encourage them to blend. There's definitely some harsher lines than you would probably get with the new ink pads, but I like it!
I kept the card pretty simple and die-cut THIS banner shape out of THIS paper and heat embossed the sentiment from THIS Hero set using THIS embossing powder. A closer look...
I wanted to create a similar card with different colors, so I used THIS Simon set and inked the stars with Mint Julep and Tide Pool ink the same way as the hearts.

Are you as excited for the new Hero Arts Ombre inks as I am? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you give this faux ombre inking a try!
