Hey, thank you for everything. but the license said that I must give attribution! How I intend to use these patterns on my designs to print on demand websites .. I can't type in my design that will be printed on T-shirts that you are the owner of that gradient or that I had manipulated it!!
How would I comply with this license in this case?
Thank you again
