Now you may be wondering what the Ombre Technique is, well it is when you create a lighter to darker effect.  The cards I have made to share with you today are nice, quick and easy ones.  I created the Ombre Technique by stamping the top (background) image, then moved the image down slightly before restamping (I did this 5 to 6 times before reinking).  If you want the background colour to be a little darker then just re-ink the stamp and stamp over top of all the stamped images again.
I have used some of the new in-colours inks to stamp the background starting with Sweet Sugarplum.

The next colour I used was Peekaboo Peach.
