Simple Color Gradient Technique with Wild at Heart

Are you ready for the fastest card ever? Melanie shows you today how to make a single or two layer card with her Wild at Heart set using a direct to stamp technique that creates a gorgeous color gradient or blocking effect with quick swipes of your colored ink pads.  Bold and graphic but painterly at the same time, the negative flower images in this frame seem to magically appear when stamped!

Love this effect, too bad it's only used with rubber/acrylic stamping.  I mostly use digital stamps so this would not work very well!

Thanks for explaining why the image was white in this project.  Love it!

What a simple, yet stunning technique!

I love it, and will surely have to try it out.

Thanks for sharing!

Lovely technique and stamp background Melanie. I can see doing this and then spraying it with some water mixed with Perfect Pearl for a shimmer watercolored effect. What a CAS and fast card - it's gorgeous. Thank you for your video!

I love this card, so simple to do but looks like a lot of work!  I love the stamp set, need to buy that one!
