SIP Challenge #145 Ombre with Coffee Helps

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  It was soooo cold here this past weekend.  It's so hard to believe that it's April and still this cold.  It even snowed in some places nearby where we live.  This is definitely out of character for a Middle Tennessee April!   I am soooo ready for warm weather!  I'm hoping we will have it very soon! 

Well it is another Tuesday so you know what that means... it's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge.  This week's challenge is Ombre!  One of my favorite Distress Ink techniques!

I have to be honest.. I love the Ombre look but this color combination is a little out of my comfort zone.  I would usually go for a blue ombre since I have so many distress inks in blue.  Obviously you can use any type of  ink to make an ink blended background but I think distress inks blend so beautifully and especially on Bristol Smooth Cardstock!  I decided that since I wanted to do a coffee theme I would go with yellow to orange using Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade for my colors.

I adore this sentiment from this coffee set from Fun Stamper's Journey.  I purchased this from my FSJ friend and coach Jeanne Bobish.  She was sweet enough to send me their new Spring to Summer Stamp Set and knowing that I love all things coffee.. there were a couple of sets I had to have.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings!  Tina
