Patterns and ombré stamping with Diana

Hello! Diana Fisher here with you today sharing a card I made focusing on the ombré trend with using pattern stamps. One of my favorite stamps from Samantha Walker is the JustRite Pattern Basics set of clear stamps. There is a solid and a dotted line version of the same stamp — the interconnecting diamonds pattern.

When I saw the similar design as a solid and a line, I wanted to try an ombré effect with those two stamps. First I used a dark charcoal grey chalk ink and then went to blue and eventually white from top to bottom on the card.

For the white color, I didn't want to use white ink on white paper, but rather I used an opaque white embossing powder over a very light blue stamping. You want to make sure if you try this that the stamp before it (the baby blue color) is completely dry or it will also take some of the white embossing powder.

This was a fun way to use your stamps when making an ombré pattern. Once the ink dried, I used the stickers from the Samantha Walker Giddy Up Boy Collection from Carta Bella to add a sentiment to the card. The stickers are popped up with foam adhesive so that it doesn't take away from the pattern on the paper. 

Thanks for stopping to see my card today. I had fun making this pattern and I encourage you to give it a try on your next project.
