Fabulous Find: Hero Arts Ombré Stamp Pads

One of the hottest trends now is Ombré Inking. So what exactly is Ombré? Ombré comes from the french word meaning shaded or shading; that is, there are colour gradations moving from dark to medium to light. The colours can be from the same colour family or they can be from related colour families.

This card has been previously posted as an example of Ombré inking using the Tim Holtz distress inks. There are dark, medium dark, medium, medium light and light sections.

While it was rather easy to ink an ombré background using distress inks, Hero Arts has made it extremely easy to create ombré looks, be it a single stamped image or an entire background with their new Ombré ink pads.  Check out the beautiful colours Sandy is carrying in the store: Butter to Orange; Grey to Black; Mint to Green and Pink to Red.

Below is a set of cards using the Pink to Red Hero Arts Ombré ink pad.

I love that rich texture Ombré inking affords to a card, accent or layout. As well, the Ombré inks dry permenant, are fade resistant on glossy papers and are waterproof for watercolours and markers.

What do you think of Ombré inking?
