(2011 Card #48) Christ is Risen

I stamped the cross from Nina Bracket's Christ is Risen set found at GinaK Designs, with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Candy Violet EP.  I then cut & embossed with Petite Large Scalloped Oval Dies from Spellbinders & framed with dark lilac.  I embossed dark lilac paper from Cor-dinations and embossed in Sizzix Damask folder from the Medallions, Frame & Damask Set 1.  Then I used Tim Holtz sanding tool to distress to reveal lighter core.  I made a rolled ribbon flower with white & Mango ribbon (why does the camera pick up ribbon's color differently that paper??? it is really close in color to the mango bg for the cross).  And the disappointing part of my card is that I used Tim Holtz Crackle paint on the same paper as the  cross BG and I expected the mango to show through the crackle.....but it didn't!

  1. Beautiful card. When I enlarged the photo I could see the crackle technique and the mango in the cracks. Lovely embossing and beautiful ribbon rose. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. This is a great card, Lagene. I see the crackle paint and think the subtleness of it lets the cross stand out more. Nice work!

  3. What a splendid card! I love the heat embossing and the embossed part of the card. Thank you for playing along with us at Card Patterns.

  4. What a beautiful cross. Your stamp embossing is really well done. My stamp embossing never seems to out very tidy but yours is beautiful.

    Thank you for your kind remarks left on my blog re: paper piecing. Much appreciated.
