Hey everyone – Jen from Caffeinated Papercuts here to show you what I’ve been up to with those gorgeous new ombre inks!
Yup, drooled a bit again…I love the colors! They are so much fun to use, especially with the beautiful background stamps available. Instantly make my own stamped, ombre background? Well don’t mind if I do!
I inked up the new Basic Gray Bold Flower Pattern stamp with the Pool to Navy Ombre ink and applied it to my white, top-folding, A2 card base. WOW. Now, my stamping was not perfect (no desk, surrounded by moving boxes…you get the idea) but I loved the distressed look it gave the card so I went with it. To cover the whole stamp with the ombre ink, I inked up the top half, then rotated my ink pad and finished covering the stamp. So looking at the card, it goes Pool to Navy, then Navy to Pool.
Since that was amazingly fun, I grabbed my Light to Dark Purple Ombre ink pad and did it again, this time with the A Little stamp set. I love how I get instant ombre gratification with these inks! To finish off the sentiment, I added the word ‘coffee’ in Cup O’ Joe ink (hehehe) and then used some foam tape to adhere it to my card front. A little corner rounding and this colorful card was all done!
