Sponging and Water Drops for Easter

I have some more Easter cards to share today -  I made both of them for the current Case Study challenge - I just love the look of the deep sponged colors and water drops on it!

I made a religious Easter Card - and a secular Easter Card. Two friends and I are running our monthly Card Stamping Workshop at my church and I will be teaching both of these cards for it.

For both cards - I stamped the images with Versamark ink on a white panel and embossed using clear embossing powder.  Next,  I sponged the Distress Inks over the panel.   To finish it, I flicked water drops onto the panel, blotting off the excess water with a paper towel.  If I wanted more spots, I repeated the water flicking and blotting until I liked how it looked.
The cross is from Prayer Journal set by Clear Dollar Stamps and the sentiment is a rubber on wood stamp from Denami Designs.

The stamps on this card are from Spring Baskets and A Good Egg by Waltzingmouse.

This is a simple technique and gives such an interesting result!
And since it's St. Patrick's Day -  if you'd like to see what I've created in the past for it -  you can check my posts here.  Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day!!

A gift for the Pastor

Our new minister has been at our church for just 6 months so this is his first Christmas with us. I wanted to give him something other than baked goods or wine (!) and I thought some note cards might be nice.

I saw a card in blogland using the stamps on this first card but I didn't note where I found it - so if it's your card please let me know and I'll link to you!

I used rustic cream cardstock from PTI to make it masculine and also drew a border around the card with an 01 Micron Pen. The floral is from Life and the quote is from Out on a Limb Sentiments - both by PTI.

For my next 2 designs I used crosses from the Spellbinders Cross Collection - sponging them before taking them out of the die. I used Soft Stone card stock from PTI for the crosses for a little contrast in color. I used Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink for the sponging.
The Bible Verses are both from Everyday Blessings by PTI.

For my 4th card for this note set I used a cross from Everyday Blessings by PTI and a Bible verse from Beautiful Scriptures by Clear Dollar Stamps.

I bundled the 8 cards and envelopes (2 of each design) into a clear box that I tied with a simple narrow silk ribbon from PTI. I made a tag using a scalloped tag Spellbinders die, added a couple of punched ferns and the sentiment from Wordsworth

Here's a close up of the tag - I silver embossed my Victorian Damask stamp by Rubbernecker onto silver cardstock.

I hope he likes them!
