Craftsy Fun Ink Sponging Technique – Sheltering Tree

This stamp set has been around for a couple of years now and I’m not at all sure that it will carry over in to the new catalogue in June. Fingers crossed that it does as I just love it.

Sheltering Tree is a perfect stamp set for beginners as you can achieve stunning effects really easily with a very simple craftsy fun ink sponging technique.

My lovely new ladies in my Saturday class were really happy with this project. However it will likewise be perfect for experienced card crafters as it lends itself to the most beautiful card crafting.

If it’s one that’s not in your craft stash yet I would highly recommend checking it out before the new catalogue comes out. Just in case!

This is a bit of a MEGA post as there’s links to other craftsy, inky blog posts below. There might even be a free PDF or Video Tutorial just for you. 🙂

I’ve created a little video tutorial for this project. I do hope you like it.

I would love it if you would leave me some feedback.

I not only love to hear from you but the feedback is useful too.
