Michaels introduced some ombre ink pads to their own line of crafty supplies last year, when I was in Florida my friend and myself were desperate to get all the colours so it meant looking in every Michaels we came across and a few we went looking for lol. We did eventually get all six colours and 50% off to boot. Of course we spotted the emboss resist paper pad and also had to get one to try. Jane was so impressed she bought two and I'm wishing I had too.
I inked the background with 'picked raspberry" distress ink and cut to size and that was it. So quick and simple. In fact so quick and simple I made two, look out for that one later.
