Clean & Simple - Day 3 Card

Hello, everyone!

I'm back with another Online Card Class card!  This one is from the Day 3 tutorial.......Gradient stamping.  I was surprised that in my massive assortment of background stamps that I couldn't find one that would work well with this technique.  Then I found a set that I hadn't cataloged or inked up and it was perfect for my very first Christmas card for next year!!!

For this technique you were to use 3 inks and a method of stamping that would make it look like you used 6 different inks.  I only used 2 different inks for my card, but it worked well.
The ink colors I used were the Hero Arts Shadow inks and I can tell you that I am quickly falling in love with these inks.  They stamp so perfectly and I love the colors!

I'll be entering this into this week's Simon Says Stamps challenge which is "Anything Goes!"

I'm so excited to be taking this course and it's not too late for you to join in on the fun!
