Easter Wishes



Good evening all! Dawn is hosting PTI's MIM Challenge this week and she shows us how to create gradient ink blending on stamped images with sponges.
 
 My card features images and a sentiment from the newly released set Spring Woods and it's coordinating dies.

 
 I did a bit of masking to create the background  and sponged Squeezed lemonade and Picked Raspberry distress inks. The bird was sponged with Salty Sea and Orange Marmalade distress inks.
 
Thanks for stopping by today!
 

 
-CHALLENGES-
 
Easter and/or Spring with the optional technique twist of masking.
