Ombre Technique with Quick Quotes 2015 Inks

Hello Quick Quotes readers!  Alicia with you today to present you with some samples of an ombre stamping technique.  I had so much fun playing with the new 2015 PowderPuff Chalking Inks. I tried to use all the colors! 

The Sunset and Sky Blue PowderPuff Chalking Inks worked perfectly with the Catalina Island papers!  This is actually the last card I did with my ombre feathers I made and I liked it best.  I not only used the inks to stamp the images and distress the edges but to color the chip board element as well.

Quick Quotes Products used:

Other ingredients:
American Craft sheer ribbon
Stampin Up Four Feathers and matching dies
Chip board cut with Stampin Up Banner framelits
Spellbinders Grand Nestibilities Label one

So here is how I created the ombre effect using Hydrangea and Sky Blue PowderPuff Chalking Inks:

  1. Ink with the lighter color first
  2. With a cloth wipe away some of the first color as to create a blending effect
  3. Tap the uncolored portion of the stamp with second color lightly in the overlap area and more in the uncolored space
  4. Stamp your image
  5. Repeat

Here are more examples that I created with all the feathers I made:
