It's Easter weekend and I have 1 easy way for you to create a beautiful Easter card: using a sponging technique.
The card below is gorgeous because of halo effect created by sponging Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry around the cross. Have you seen our sponges? Click on the image below to order at pack at my online store:
HINT: Take each sponge and cut it into wedges (6) and then dedicate each wedge to a specific Stampin' Up! ink color!
