Easter Crosses



This card went through a bit of an evolution  through it's design.  I've used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, colours are from Color Throwdown - (Regal Rose, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Basic Grey) and the Easter theme is from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I struggled with the sketch a bit, just because I was trying to add two pieces of coloured DSP in the background, and it just wasn't working - so I opted for simplicity.  The two background crosses were initially stamped grey on white.  I like this effect much better - white craft ink stamped on black.

Today holds bag prep for stampers and movie watching.  Later, I'll do some sweater knitting, and movie watching.  It's just that kind of day.

Hope your day pans out the way you like!  Thanks for stopping here for a visit.

I like your layering and I really like your choice of the white on black crosses. I also like that you focused the color on the center cross. Happy Easter to you and your family! Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I never thought of using black in an Easter card. You pulled it off. The crosses show up wonderfully. Such a beautiful textured card. Thanks so much for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I like that background also. It almost has a ghosting effect. Very pretty coloring on the other cross. Thanks for playing with us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
