Anyway, I lucked into finding the new Hero Arts Ombre' inks at Hobby Lobby. Yay for that and yay for 40% off coupons. So many of my favorite online vendors have been sold out of them so this was a huge find for me as I'd been eying them since they came out.
I used the stamp set from the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for April.What a great birthday set!
I used the Ombre' inks to stamp the balloons...added some string with a black pen and some washi tape. And that big bold sentiment was embossed with Zing gold embossing powder. And no...I did not burn anything!
You can see the embossing better here:
I enjoyed using the inks and I think they are a little more vibrant than they show up in the photos. I like the variations and gradients you get with them. Fun to use!
I added a little washi tape that was included with the kit and used a Corner Chomper to add a little more interest to the corners...and that was it!
