Today I am sharing my take on a card I cased from Andrea Walford that uses color gradation.

Two things that are essential in the creation of this card.  A good Stamp-a-ma-jig and a solid image border type stamp like Dotty Angles.  Take a look at another sample.

This card uses the Chalk Lines Stamp Set and of course the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  It is also very important to attach the card stock you are stamping on securely to your grid paper.  I used some dotto adhesive from my stash.  If you don't have ditto, you can use a Two-Way Glue Pen and just let it dry before placing your card stock on it.  It will be tacky but not like adhesive and your card stock will stay put.

One more look at each card from another view.

Notice that a row or two on each card is stamped with 2 colors of ink to create a third color.  I like the rainbow effect.  What do you think?  Please leave me a comment with your thoughts on this technique.  I love to hear from you!
