Inky’s Easter Blog Hop!

This is one of two posts today, so be sure to scroll for more inspiration!
Welcome to Inky’s Easter Blog Hop! If you're hopping, you’ve just come from Tex’s blog, if not...you will want to start at the beginning of the hop and see what the Inky Antics Design Team has prepared for you. 


I used Groovy Crosses drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung to create this project, which you can find on this page.


For each of these cards, I stamped the images and shaded them with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.
Each of the colored backgrounds were run through the Xyron sticker machine, burnished well and covered with You're So Fine Cool Highlight Glitter.  Then each piece was run through the Cuttlebug Victoria Embossing Folder.  Each feels fresh and springy!

The blog hop starts today and ends on Sunday, March 25th at midnight Central time. Please visit each DT members’ blog to view their projects and leave a comment for each designer. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please). Two people’s names will be drawn at random to receive a surprise Inky prize pack. The winners’ names will be announced on the Inky Antics blog next Monday, so remember to stop back and see if you’ve won.
Your next stop will be Crystal's blog.  Enjoy!

Love love love your cards! Simple elegance (with a great message by the way!)
I'll have to look up the "burnish" technique - that is new to me. and the glitter is a great addition. Thanks for sharing!
