Hello! Have you seen the new Ombre inks from Hero Arts? Oh my. I’m in love. However, everywhere I look, they are out of stock. I wanted to create a few cards with a similar look that these ink pads give, but use the supplies I already have.
I did some selective inking on the hearts from 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!
As you can see on this card, I used the banner die as it was intended. The heart card uses that same die in a new way…flat and using the stitched lines as an anchor. It’s a great way to stretch your dies!
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!
