Easter comparison

Hello Friends and happy almost Friday!

With Easter only a few weeks away I decided it was high time I dusted down my Easter supplies and get to work as I do like to make and send out Easter cards!

I unearthed a cute stamp set by Pink & Main which I think arrived too late for Easter last year so I decided to use them for a super quick CAS card. I wanted to play along with the colour challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches and selected a few Altenew inks which seemed to match the challenge colours. Then my eyes landed on my newly-acquired Gina K inks and I decided it would be good to test them out on these stamps – so I ended up with two cards!

 

First up here, the Altenew inks card. I LOVE the Altenew inks and find they stamp very well – in fact I have all of them in my collection! I added a Lawn Fawn sentiment which I had smothered in Nuvo Aqua shimmer – love the delicate sheen!

 

 

Next my Gina K inks. I won some at Simon Says Create and have been trying to swatch them since I got home. They also stamp very nicely and the colours are so vibrant. Think I’ll be reaching for these a lot too! I used the same Lawn Fawn die cut but in the interests of comparison, I painted the die cut with a layer of Ink On 3’s Pixie Dust. Oh my goodness! Can you see that shimmer? Wonderful! Now I want to PIXIE DUST ALL THINGS!!

Thanks for stopping by!
