It’s time for another Global Totally Techniques Blog Hop, and this month we are showcasing the Ombre Technique. There are so many different ways that you can do this technique so make sure you check out what the rest of the talented design team have come up have come up with.
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.
Then l used Dapper Denim for the last card.
