SNSS Jesus Paid it All~

Good morning everyone! I would like to share three cards made with He Lives stamp set. All three cards are created by watercolouring the image and using the matching die to cut it out. For the first card, I created a mask using a straight edge of paper and moving it as I sponged my colour to create the rays. The mound of dirt is from the Calvary die that I cut three times. The verse from one of the beloved easter hymns is from the matching Jesus Paid it all stamp set.

My second card is stamped the same way, except  I created an early morning sunrise sponging various inks. The sentiment is from the He lives set.  

Finally, my third card is another glorious morning card depicting the cross of the Risen Christ and His crown of thorns. To create a faux stitched look, I used a rotary tracing wheel. Thanks Diane!
He lives, He Lives, Christ Jesus Lives today!

Materials used:
Stamps: He Lives, Jesus Paid it All
Paper: SU
Inks: Ranger Inks - Mustard Seed, Barn door, Fired brick, Brushed Corduroy, Versafine Black, Memento grape jelly, rosebud
Accessories: SNSS Rugged Cross die, Calvary die, tracing wheel

SNSS Landscape Silhouettes~

HI Everyone! I am so excited to share this card with you for a couple reasons.
  1.  it is a CAS card
  2.  I learned this technique from my friend Cathy
  3.  It reminds me of my trip to Nakuru Kenya and it honestly looks like a Kenyan sunset.
I took three distressed inks and sponged the oval I cut out with my first colour. Next I created a mask for my sun and sponged the next two colours. Then I took the amazing landscape silhouettes stamp of choice and stamped in black. Voila! There was my most beautiful sunset...I also took the sketch challenge SC481 and designed my card into the sketch. The sentiment is taken from flower blocks 1 and stamped directly onto the base. 

Materials Used:
Stamps: Landscape silhouettes, Flower Blocks 1
Inks: Ranger distressed inks mustard seed, spiced  marmalade, fired brick, Versafine black, 
Paper: SU
Accessories: Spellbinder ovals die, CTMH brads

Thank you for stopping by!
