Easter Lilies

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS580) so a big congrats to Carlene! Carlene not only has a beautiful gallery, she also volunteers her time to notify people each week in the favorites thread & also leaves the warmest, sweetest comments for everyone. It’s truly my pleasure to feature her this week.

After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I love the sun ray embossing so I kept that, but I used different colors, different die cut bg & made mine an Easter card.

For my Easter card, I first die cut & embossed the sunburst bg. For the Lily Cross Blessings circle, I stamped it w/ Versacolor indigo pigment ink then heat embossed it w/ pastel embossing powder. The embossing powder lightens the ink color &  gives it a slight metallic sheen. For the lilies,  I put the image into my Misti, stamped it w/ sky blue ink, lightly colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ the same indigo ink & embossed w/ the same powder. Then I did quite a bit of fussy cutting on them. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
