Clean and Simple Day 3

Before I get to my new card I want to welcome my email subscribers! I have 5 email subscribers to my blog and I finally figured out how to get to that number.... I am new to blogging and there is still so much I don't know. So I apologize, that it took me so long to acknowledge you. I am happy you found my blog and liked it so much that you wanted to stay updated! It means a lot to me. 

For all of you I have this picture:

It is made out of Crayons, which are vertically arranged, so you are looking at the tip of  the crayons. I hope you like it.


Here is a card trying out Jennifer McGuire's gradient technique, that she explained so well in her video. You ink you stamp with one color first, then stamp. Then you take the next color and ink up your stamp without cleaning the stamp in between, so it has both colors mixed. then you clean the stamp and use ink number 2 alone, next you ink with ink number 3 and don't clean your stamp and so on and on and on, depending how long your paper is and how large/small your stamp.It gives that subtle gradient to the colors.

Wonderful example of gradient stamping. And, your little flowers embellishing your sentiment are the perfect little touch.
