He Has Risen...Just as He Said!

There is no better combination for Easter cards than the Taylored Expressions At the Cross series and the He is Risen stamp set!!  I used it last year on this card.  The linked card is mainly white with a hint of light blue. I wanted to use the same stamps and dies with a different look.  I added a cheerful spring green along with all the colors of a sunrise!

I do play around regularly with watercoloring - but it's still not natural for me. I find it so much easier to use the watercolor swoosh stamps like the Taylored Expressions set Stroke of Genius. I simply pulled a variety of coordinating greens, blues and then a few splashed of sunrise colors, then started working my way up the panel. I'm not sure it screams "sunrise" but I like the soft look.

I cut the cross out of Oreo - then wanted to give it a little more elegance so I colored over it with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter.

SUPPLY LIST

I used a variety of inks in greens, blues and sunrise colors. The sequins are the small clear sequins in the Sweetheart pack.

The essence of Easter, expressed with beauty and style. Your background truly is stunning; you've captured my 'image' of what resurrection colours would look like...
