SJC18: Love

Love by Jen ShultsHi everyone! Today we have a fun new inspiration photo and sketch over at Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge.

For my card I did a pretty direct interpretation of the inspiration photo. 🙂 This was a really fun card to make. Gradients are one of my favorite things to include on a card. 🙂

Here’s a look at how the gradient for the letters came together:

Gradient Die Cut Letters

To start the gradient I sponged some Angel Pink Memento ink on Sugar Cube cardstock. Next I sponged a row of Rose Bud, lightly blending it up into the Angel Pink. The last row was of Love Letter, again lightly blended into the Rose Bud. I aligned the dies so that they picked up as much of the complete gradient as possible and then die cut them. ***Be sure to wipe your dies off with a paper towel after running them through the die cut machine as they will have picked up some of the ink from the paper. I sponged on a bit more ink just to the bottom edges of the letters after removing them from the dies.
