Radiant Gradient - Merry Christmas!
I know - I'm posting on a Saturday!! Wow - I hardly ever do that. But I really wanted to show you the holiday card that I just made for the newest challenge over at Moxie Fab World. The challenge is to demonstrate the gradient in color, which is very popular in so many areas of fashion, papercrafting, and design. I was inspired by a t-shirt that I purchased this summer from American Eagle - love variegated blues and turquoises. The colors remind me of a pool in the summer, or snow drifts in the winter. That's why I decided to once again kill two birds with one stone - a card for the challenge AND another holiday card for my stash!! Bonus!
I love that Cath Edvalson pushes me to step out of my comfort zone in an effort to try something new, or to be more aware of what's around me. It didn't occur to me, until she enlightened me, that gradient color is everywhere!!
