Add an E for Easter

The challenge at Just Add Ink is to include something that begins with the letter E. An Easter card seemed the obvious way to get in that E. I started with a piece of Lemon Drop CS and using the Sunburst Stencil, I sponged on Sweet Mango ink. Next I placed my panel in my MISTI (without the mousepad) and stamped “The Old Rugged Cross” background stamp in Warm Glow ink for a very subtle background. On a piece of White CS I stamped the cross from Easter Wishes in Warm Cocoa ink and colored with Copics: E23 and E25. The drape was colored with BV00 and BV01, then I stamped the sentiment in Obsidian. I stamped the Easter Lilies in Obsidian and colored with YG01, YG03, C00 and C01, the fussy cut the cross and the flowers. The lilies were a bit of a challenge to cut, but I wanted something at the base of the cross.

  1. This is beautiful Judy. I love everything about it. The subtle background the fussy cutting – well done with that – and the colours all are lovely. A good take on the challenge.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. The lilies indeed worth the trouble and the little white spots that I missed don’t show as bad as I thought they would.

    1. Thanks Golda. “The Old Rugged Cross” is by Divinity Designs, formerly Our Daily Bread Designs. They have some really nice religious images.

  2. Beautiful Judy. I should just leave it with that! Hope and faith is with us and your card portrays that perfectly.

  3. I like the background stamp – it’s perfect for this Easter card. The lilies must have taken some time to cut out. Chantell Just Add Ink
