Winnie and Walter Gradient Challenge with Vanessa

Hello, Hello, Hello!! Today I am going to to a really quick post to show you the card I created for Winnie and Walter's Gradient Challenge with Vanessa. This card was probably the easiest and quickest I have done in a long time.

I started by taping off the front of a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" card. I then inked a mixture of "Salty Ocean" and "Tumbled Glass" distress ink with an ink blending tool into the gradient design on the right. I then moved my tape over slightly and added a second, thin gradient line to the left of the first. Instead of starting with the darkest color on the bottom like I did with the first gradient, I swapped it and started with the darkest color on top. This was so easy and so fun to create!! (The photos are a bit "blue" and I apologize. I had a hard time fixing these in PS.)

I then stamped the "you" from Winnie and Walter's "Big Bold You" set with versa mark ink and heat embossed it with holographic ink. It does not show up as I wanted it to so I tried to ink a bit of the "Salty Ocean" ink over it. I then stamped the "thank" with the same color blue.

The last step was to adhere some sequins and rhinestones. This will not require any additional postage and was so easy to make that I could do a bunch at one time.

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today.
