Well, my World Card Making weekend has been pretty productive! I got two cards completed! WaaHoo! I wish I were a faster card maker, but my process becomes a very lengthy and messy one when I'm in the thick of it, so I'm feeling that 2 is a good stopping point for the weekend - I need to clean my crop area stat!
This second card is another submission into Moxie Fab World's Gradient Challenge. I had a completely different concept in mind for this one, but the process took over and I'm glad I followed my instincts to go this route, as I think it looks really nice.
I am very drawn to artistic quilting and all the hand dyed fabrics. You find really rich colors and gradients. One gradient variation that I am particularly drawn to is rich purples, reds, deep pinks and oranges. It also reminds me of a great tie dye shop in my hometown's year-round Farmer's Market. Seeing all the colorful fabrics packed together in a small space is very inspirational artistically. These colors just feel like love to me.
I added gradient in several "layers" on this card. The background paper has a gradient that sets the tone for the other pieces. Then I inked a gradient over both the edge boarder under the sentiment as well as the paper on the interior of the felt heart-which I then sanded a bit to expose the raised white dots. I also inked a gradation around the perimeter of the white cardstock of the sentiment. The fibers I used felt so warm and cozy and the colors so rich and they also had that gradient feel combining them together. So that's it. Hope you had a great weekend! Enjoy!
