Ombre' inks.. so Fun!

Happy Monday everyone.. I hope you all had a great weekend! Today I'm showing you two cards using the Hero Arts Ombre' ink pads. This pads are gorgeous and they come in great variety of colors.  You can pick up these pads in the Right at Home Shop.

On my first card I used the Pink to Red pad... these pads have a variation of three shades that go from darker to lighter based on the shade of the pad. I stamped the chevron background here with the pad using all three colors. I also stamped the butterfly using all three shades in the ink pad. 

You can also use just one of the shades in the pad which is what I did for the Hello sentiment, it's stamped with just the darkest part of the pad. What's great about this is it coordinates with the same color used on the Chevron in the background. 

On my second cardI stamped each of the Flowers using a different pad making sure all three sections of the pad where on the images. This is a great way to give your stamped image shadows as well. These are formulated the same as the other Hero Arts inks.. and they may stamp a bit blotchy at first but as they dry and absorb into the paper they even out for great coverage. 

This card using 5 of the pads.. in Lilac to Grape Purple, Butter to Orange, Mint to Green Pink to Red & Light to Dark Peach. There is also a Grey to Black Pad and Sand to Chocolate Pad for neutrals. 

Head over to the Right at Home shop and grab yours today.. You can also see a great project that Nicole did as well with these fab inks here and download a Free Color Chart for these pads while you're there.
