Clean and Simple Card Class 2 Day 3 - 1

Day 3 is all about gradient stamping.  I must admit to trying Jennifer's technique and wasn't having a lot of success...so I jumped to Kristina's demonstration.  This is a bit more subtle...but the dots at the bottom actually are stamped in two colors...offset just a tad (I suppose you could have blurry eyes if you saw it in real life...ha ha!).  The stripes are just stamped once.  However, the hearts are stamped a couple of times each with different ink.  The girls were using Hero Arts Shadow Ink and they said it blends in very nicely and dries very good...I do not have any Hero Arts Shadow Ink...so I just used my PTI ink...again, just stamped and then offset the second stamp with a different color.  The sentiment is from an MFT set that I got when I was at CHA two years ago.

  1. I love both of your heart cards and using the crackle background looks really nice.
