The first one uses my favorite Penny Black stamp called christmas star. After watching Elizabeth Allan's coloring video "here" (she should be a teacher!) I used a coupon to get a package of the Brushstix and gave it a try. Coloring is not my forte, (at all!) but even I was able to use her technique. The inks are Brilliance Pearlescent Crimson, Pearlescent Beige & VersaMagic Pink Petunia. I finished by brushing on Shimmer Spritz. Penny Black simple scroll is stamped on the background & the embossing folder is Sizzix for SU.
The second card was the first one made with my new Memory Box Easter egg die. I used some old glitter paper & at first I threw out the little pieces. Then I realized I could mix & match them, so I went through the wastebasket (all it has are pieces from diecuts (LOTS of little pieces of paper!) & found all but one--amazing! The colors aren't very good in the photo, but it is bright pink with green & blue with purple. The spellbinder die always reminds me of an Easter basket so I used it along with the Penny Black simple scroll (instead of grass). The greeting is TPC Studio.
Wishing all of you a blessed Easter weekend with family & friends. Thanks for visiting.
