Hi all and welcome to the final day of Flourishes’ Release Week! And, guess what? If you like what you’ve seen, there's good news! All three of Flourishes’ new sets for February are in the Flourishes store!! Just click HERE to see for yourself!
Today's final set, in my humble opinion, was definitely worth the wait. If you've been searching for beautiful images and sentiments to celebrate the Easter season, look no further. Marcella Hawley has got you covered.
He Is Risen features a lily draped cross - a perfect image to celebrate Christ's resurrection each Easter. This illustration gorgeously drawn by Marcella Hawley not only features a beautiful cross but a single Easter Lily as well. This 4 by 6" set also features 5 beautiful sentiments perfect for this joyous religious holiday.
On to my creation! When I first set sights on this set, I knew that I wanted to create a card that was rather simple in layout to make that cross take center stage. And so, this is what I came up with!
I stamped my image on Flourishes Classic White Card Stock using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink not once, not twice, but three times and then started to color up the main image - focusing on the leaves and cross. I used Copic markers in these collections!
I added B60, B63 and B66 to color up the Forget-Me-Knots and also added some BG0000 to give the petals of my lilies a little extra pop. After I was done coloring, I did layer the flowers so that there are actually three layers here to give it a little extra dimension..... see? I also added some glitter glue to the flower's stamens.
From there, matted it all up with some Basic Grey Paper, some beautiful crushed silk ribbon, and gold cording. you can see that I cut out my image using a Spellbinders Classic Oval and Grand Oval, sponging on some Scattered Straw Distress Ink while the die was still on. I also used the die as a guide for some paper piercing as well. Add a sentiment from the set on a notched tag and that, my friends, is it!
