Make It Monday #58- Graduated Backgrounds

Today I am bringing you a tutorial on how to create the graduated backgrounds I have been using in many projects on my blog over the last few months.  I cover two techniques, one using Copic markers and one using ink refills in a watercoloring technique.  Enjoy!
