Easter is coming

Today my daughter had a 2-hour delay for school because of the blizzard yesterday. So I got to sleep in and I let them watch a show while I made this card for some Wednesday challenges:

Freshly Made Sketches
Simon Says - embossing
OWH Midweek Throwdown - Easter
Word Art Wednesday
Color Throwdown


I thought Sonoma worked really well with the color challenge at Color Throwdown. I'm not sure why the picture didn't turn out very pretty, but it's really nice in real life. The cross is popped up, and I used bitty Opaques on the zip strip. I embossed the sentiment on the black cardstock with white embossing powder.
 

Materials used:
Cardstock: Bamboo, Black
B&Ts: Sonoma
Stamps: He is Risen
Ink: VersaMark, Black
Other: White embossing Powder, Mocha Opaques

  11. So pretty! I hesitate to emboss on black because mistakes show up more easily but this inspires me to try again! Great job on the sketch too!
