Easy Ombre Ink Background

Good Morning!  Today on The House That Stamps Built blog it is my turn to do a Project of the Week and  would like to tell you about an easy way to do ombre backgrounds.  Supplies are few:

white card stock,
ink - any kind -I experimented with 4 different kinds

Step 1 is to ink up your brayer
Step 2 roll onto the card stock several time - until ink is gone.
Step 3 re-ink brayer and repeat step 2 until you have the depth of color you want
always start at the same place so the ink gets darker and then lighter as you roll down the card stock
Here is a finished card
For this card I used one of Wendy's new Large Sentiment sets called Happy Cling Set.  This set has nineteen different sentiments for all occasions.  The snowflake is called Snowflake Outline.  Both were heat embossed with White Detail Embossing powder on top of the inked card stock.

Hope you give this easy technique a try - it is fun!   Thanks for looking at my card.  Have a happy Stamping Day!
