Ombré Ombré!

Hello all!

I'm ashamed to say that I've had a rather uninspiring non-crafty week or so, in favour of wedding prep and the likes! I also couldn't bear to approach my craft desk which is shocking.

However I'm delighted to reveal that a collection of cards I made using the latest Hero Arts goodies is featured in the brand-new issue of Papercraft Essentials - 126 which is on sale now! The Beginner's Guide, which features an article gave me a chance to trial the fabulous range of Ombré inks and stamps and give honest feedback! I'm still excited about this project and Hero Arts even gave me a cheeky mention on social media this week!

I felt apprehensive about achieving the perfect ombré look as I’d never attempted it before in my papercrafts! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the inkpads are very versatile and it couldn’t be easier to achieve a beautiful gradation of colour with the one inkpad. I found that overlapping the inks when inking helped to get a graduated line of colour, the inks will produce varied results depending on the colour of cardstock you use. 

These inks work perfectly with the Hero Arts Color Layering stamp range. Use the ombré inkpads to build the image or mix and match inks to create your own combinations for endless possibilities! If I had a to pick a favourite colour it would have to be the Mint to Green shades as it's works for a range of projects and occasions.

Hero Arts are based in the USA but their products can easily be found on a number of sites including Make the Day Special and if you're interested in seeing my feature a copy of the magazine can be found here!

Ta Ta for now,
