Happy Saturday everyone! I'm so glad it's the weekend!
I made this Easter card for the Card Concept challenge - Naturally Pink. I'd say my card was CAS Mixed Media
I was inspired by the colors and the nest! I was going to add eggs to the nest but then felt an empty nest was the perfect illustration of the empty tomb on Easter Day as 'He has Risen!"
I made my background using my friend Loll's Splash Watercolor technique using Worn Lipstick and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks and water on my craft mat.
I dried the background with my heat tool and then stamped the nest from the Bird Feather set using Ranger Distress Ground Espresso ink. I love the look of the splash watercolor. Some of it's a wash and some of it's water spots!
I gold embossed the sentiment from Everlasting Life by Verve on the panel. It really sparkles in the light IRL - you can see that sparkle a bit in the two photos above.
I layered panel over a slightly larger gold foil panel from SU and added 3 Sugar Blend sequins from Avery Elle
I'm also linking my card to:
I used stamps, watercolor and wet embossing
Let us celebrate the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem this Palm Sunday and his final teachings to his disciples during the week before the sadness of Good Friday when he dies for our sins. How wonderful that Joy returns on Easter Sunday - when He is Risen!
