Our Savior Lives!

Make It Monday this week is with Melissa Phillips, and she uses an 
embossing enamel for texture on her card. 
I've never applied my Stampendous Shabby Green the way Melissa did, and
was happy to learn a new technique with an embossing powder I already loved.

Starting with the bg, I used a PTI stencil, and sponged inked my colors with Tim Holtz' 
Distress Oxides, and wet the stencil before laying it onto my inked panel.
Marcia Hill shared this technique with us all at our retreat in Kansas.
Just love the effect! 
Cut Fun Frames several times, and treated the center with Lindy's Magicals
before adding the Shabby Green Embossing Powder.

My egg and die cut sentiment are layered, both cut with shimmer cardstock.
I found the silk ombre seam binding ribbon in my stash, and think it's a bit
bright for the card. If I do a repeat, I think white ribbon would be better.

I love to send out Easter cards. And this along with others, will be sent out this week.

Here are links to the PTI products I used:
