He is Risen!

I sincerely hope to get some Easter cards out this year. With it coming so early--we will not be celebrating with any family.

I was very excited when I saw the set Easter Elegance from Verve Visual!! It is just what I wanted for an Easter set!

The layout is from a sketch from Sweet Miss Daisy. It was perfect for the papers I set out last night after I cleaned my desk. The designer papers are from K & Co. The main image is on Pearlized Cream paper I got from Verve.

I stamped the image and the sentiment with Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk ink by Clearsnap. (it is one of my favorites). Then I simply used my colored pencils to highlight the cross, and inked the edges of the main image with Close to Cocoa Classic ink.

It was such an easy sketch for this set--the card came together cleanly and easily!

Now--the next challenge is to get this puppy in the mail (I really stink at that!!)

This is just gorgeous! I love the highlighting around the cross and the perfect amount of sponging around the edges. Beautifully done! :)
