New Spring Stamps from IO - Day 3

The Impression Obsession team is showcasing new Spring images that are available NOW! You can visit the I.O. Blog all this week for links to the previews and ALL the challenge details. Leave a comment on our designers' posts throughout the week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificates from Impression Obsession!

I have some Easter stamps in the new release, and today I have a quick video to share to show how I made this card! This is an inking technique I've used in the past, and I've had many requests for a how-to video. I'll be making more short format videos to accompany my stamps this year, and I hope that will be helpful to you, and especially to retail stores who carry my stamp designs (thank you!). 

Stamps I used: Cross Sunrise, Easter Blessings
