Video: Two-Tone Gradient Stripes Background

by Therese Calvird

Hi there! It’s Therese and it is time for another card and video.

The Gradient Stripes Stamp Set has so many possibilities and today I am sharing how to create an easy background with it.

Altenew - Gradient Stripes - Stunning Cosmos - Therese Calvird (card video) 1 copyI used the Sea Breeze and Limestone Crisp Dye Inks which look fabulous together.

Then, I colored three flowers from the Stunning Cosmos Stamp Set with Altenew Artist Markers and die cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I decided to film the creative process,

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD on Youtube.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Yes, they are certainly stunning and now so much easier to use because they have the coordinating dies (especially those long stems). Thanks so much Teresa
