A day late, probably more than a dollar short (haha), but at last I'm able to post my card for the March Crafters of Faith Challenge! (you would not believe the technological challenges I've experienced in the last 4 days. Fingers crossed that every thing is fixed and happy now)
Here's the challenge from our dear Jeanette:
"Since we will be posting on Easter Sunday – March 31 – and since we are Crafters of Faith, I’d like us to create a religious-themed Easter card. No Easter bunnies and such, but instead a card that focuses on the Risen Lord! It can include Scripture and/or images, but needs to focus on the religious aspect of the holiday.
He is not here; he has risen! (Luke 24:6)"
And here is my card:
The card base is Whisper White, layers are Barely Banana and Lavender Lace. Pearls and ribbon from my stash, originating at local craft stores.
The cross is from a brass stencil by Dreamweaver. I also used Dreamweaver's white embossing paste that I mixed with iridescent embossing glitter to give it sparkle. You have to work quickly as the paste will set up fast. Mix the paste with the glitter on a glossy surface (I used a coated paper plate), spread with your spatula or another tool. Again, it's important to get it right on the first pass, because you can only make one more pass with your spatula, it sets that quickly.
Carefully remove the tape and lift your stencil from one side to the other, making sure that you don't smudge it during the process. Let it finish drying for a few hours and then continue making your card.
I must say, that the camera is very unforgiving (haha). In person, it looks much more smooth than the picture shows.
Thank you Jeanette for such an inspiring challenge for March! And thanks to the other members of Crafters of Faith for overlooking my tardy posting. Be sure to check out their beautiful creations - links are in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by!
