Ombre Dahlia

This card is one that we made at a recent card class featuring the new Ombre Inks.  The inks are just great, and they add such a nice look to projects. They do take a bit of practice though -- knowing how to stamp large images, etc.

Ombre inks are a series of shades of the same colors going from light to dark (or dark to light depending on how you hold the stamp pad).  This card is a monochromatic card made using the Rich Razzleberry Ombre ink pad.  I held the stamp pad with the lighter shade at the top.  Since the stamp was pretty  much the same size as the stamp pad, it didn't take too much technique to apply the ink.  One thing you do not want to do with the ombre inks is to  apply the ink to the stamp as you do with regular ink pads.  That would result in "lines" in the image.  You need to move it around so that the ink pad is "doing the cha-cha" across the ink pad.  I encourage you to look up some videos on You Tube to see the Ombre inking technique.  (Some one of these days I'll post videos, too!)
