Hey crafty chicks! I promised to share the finished cards from this Stamparatus technique post and here's the first set.
I had so much fun picking out sets of three shades of the same color to use for this ombre inking technique! This first card used Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay. My cardstock accent colors were Lovely Lipstick and Mango Melody. Love how the "hot" colors balance all those cool tones.
This one used Balmy Blue as an accent for Grapefruit Grove, Petal Pink and Calypso Coral. The fun tilted mat was inspired by a layout in Cheat Sheets Collection #15. See, even I use Cheat Sheets! : )
This last one is my favorite, I think! I know it isn't ombre, but the four layers of ink are just such a wow. It was so crisp and clean by itself I didn't do a fancy layout with it as I felt it would detract from the card.
All these techniques are in my original post, so if you're wanting instructions, head there. I just LOVE my new Stamparatus and it just keeps getting better every time I sit down to play with it. Stay tuned for more posts with the rest of the finished cards!
