Resist Inked Ombre Background

Hi there everyone and happy Thursday!

Lydia here with you today sharing with you a fun inked background technique.

I stamped and heat embossed in clear a leaf from Winnie & Walter Renee's Leaves. I then inked over it with a mint colour ink. I then stamped and heat embossed the leaves again in clear, inked over it again in a peacock coloured ink- this time I stopped a little higher up.

I did this process another two times- stamping and heat embossing the leaves in clear and inking over them, each time using a darker shade of ink and inking less down the page.

For the sentiment I used Super Script 2 from Altenew.

Thank you so much for stopping by !

Hugs, Lydia x
