Tuesday with Tara {take 340} Hey Ombre!

Hey you, happy Tuesday!

Over in our Facebook Challenge Group the theme of the day is OMBRE!  It’s always a fun theme, picking several colors that flow together… today, they are all the same color family working from light to dark.

Today’s cute card features some fun ombre accents on another trio of tags!  This time I chose to use Kraft tags (you KNOW I love me some Kraft!) with the adorable hot dog stamps by Tracey Hey.

I knew these sweet designs would look fabulous simply stamped in black ink, allowing me to play with a fun ombre look using shades of green Distress Paint on the edges of the tags!  I’ve used Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint and Rustic Wilderness together here, just brushed a different color along the edge of each tag and then added some splatters using the paint on one of the stamps in the set.

I cleaned off my brush between colors on a scrap of Cardstock and decided afterwords that it would be a fun touch to also stamp the balloons on that painted paper.  Since the ink was slow to dry on the painted surface, I added some embossing powder to speed things up and give it a bit of of shine.  The strings are some soft fabric wire which was easy to shape and then glue into place exactly where I wanted it.

I hope you like it and are inspired by this simple way to make an ombre card!

Inky (& painty!) hugs,
