love love love

Not only am I a guest for the Clean and Simple Card Making 2 class, but I also have the privilege of being a participant! It's only Day 3, and I have learned so much.

Today Jennifer McGuire shared some tips on gradient stamping.  I used 3 shadow inks from Hero Arts- the 2 feathers on the outside and the one in the center.  The other 2 feathers are a result of double inking.  I love how 3 colors that I might not typically put together all of a sudden seem harmonious on the card:


I made this while stamping at Jessica's tonight, and I have to admit that it took me an insanely long amount of time to execute.  I had to practice my gradient on a separate piece of paper, then measure out the spacing, then finally stamp it out.  But I'm really happy with the result!

  2. This is just so stunning Jen! I really thought it was several different inks rather than the gradient stamping effect! You totally rock this technique!!

  3. NO kidding, this looks smashing! Love the inking idea, you get a whole other color, and it automatically coordinates. Brilliant!
