Ombre Ink Techniques (Puerto Vallarta Part 2)

In today's post, I thought I'd show you a couple ombre techniques from the Puerto Vallarta layouts. The first is the sun rays on this beach layout. 

To create the sun in the top right corner, used a Cricut cut sun overlay as a stencil and sponged with Canary. The ombre effect was created by stamping the center with Sorbet. This techniques is repeated by stamping another sun in the lower right corner.

You can also see an ombre effect for the word beach. This was created by first inking the stamp with Glacier, then inking the bottom 2/3 of the stamp with Juniper and finally inking the bottom 1/3 of the stamp with Lagoon.

The word sunshine was stamped with an onbre using Canary, Saffron and Goldrush ink. A tip for stamping ombre is to always start by loading your stamp with the lightest color and then add the other colors. Also you'll want to move fairly quickly so the first ink doesn't have a chance to dry. You can "huff" on the stamp if you are concerned that it may need some moisture.

Hope you are enjoyed these layout and they have inspired you to try the ombre technique on your own projects.
