TESC 84 and Moxie Fab World Challenge

The Moxie Fab World Challenge this time is called - Gradient is Radiant. It was really neat challenge and I ended up using the latest Taylored Expressions Sketch #84 for this card. This sketch is really very versatile and I can see myself using this in future. This card was also for the OCC Challenge of creating Monochromatic cards :)

Here is my card,



Diwali the festival of Lights is coming in the Month of October and I wanted to make a bunch of cards for that. I used this fan stamp from the Paper Source Company. They have come with this whole line of Indian stamps that are just stunning. I used the Dee Gruenig Gradient Ink for the image. It is the Dee Gruenig's Signature series from Marvy called Blending Box. It has shades of Orange within the ink pad making it easier for this kind of gradient stamping. You might not be able to see the shades in the stamped image, but it is there :)

I also used different shades of Orange from the Coredinations Card stock for the panel on the card further tying in the gradient factor. I kept the card simple without adding further embellishments. I kind of liked the different shades of orange on the card.

Here is the sketch,



Supplies:
Stamp Set - Indian Fan Stamp from Paper Source
Paper - Coredinations Card stock, SU White CS, PTI Vintage Cream CS
Ink - Dee Gruenig Blending Box - Shades of Orange, Chai Distress Ink from PTI
Other - SU Word Window Punch, Marvy Circle Punches
