Easter's on it's Way


Betsy shows us her ink sponging techniques on this week's MIM.
Loved her detailed and careful instruction.


I send a lot of Easter cards, maybe close to 30!
Love to do them for grandkids, and children of friends.
Betsy used a PTI stencil, which I completely forgot to order on release night,
so I used a Memory Box branch stencil, along with one I made from
a die cut of Easter Grass.
Betsy mostly covered her front with sponged ink first, I left the white as a bg,
and blended and ombred the inks for my leaves and branches.
Had fun ombre-ing the grass too!
Die cuts from Bunny Basket were Zing embossed,
the posies inked.


A peek on the inside with plenty of room to write.

  2. Nancy, this is adorable! Embossing the die-cuts was a great idea, something I wouldn't think to do. It looks really nice.

    I had to tell you I loved your comment on Jeanne’s 12 kit cards, that made me laugh, I can see you falling off your stool! If I was on a stool I would have fallen off too :)
