Hello. Today’s video shares multiple cards using the new Hero Arts Ombré ink pads.

Oh these ombre ink pads are incredibly delightful! I have been waiting to get my hands on them for so long. Just as the name suggests, these ink pads stamp color from light to dark and there are five ink pads in total so far. The formulation of the ink pads are the same as the Hero Arts Shadow Inks. (For more info on these inks, watch THIS.) And just check out the lovely blend of colors…
To create the cards, I stamped sentiments from the Hero Arts Hello, Thanks, and Happy Stamp & Cut sets using these new ombre inks. (Helpful tip: The results are best when you go back and forth slightly as you ink to get the colors to blend them a bit more.) I used my MISTI tool to help with positioning, but you can use an acrylic block if you don’t have this tool.
You could definitely achieve the same look by multi-inking with three ink pads. However, these are lovely!
