Another ODBD Easter card







Hi, everyone, sorry for the crooked pic. This is a card I made with one of my new ODBD sets, He is Risen. I wanted a very rustic, antique feel. I have a hard time with this particular image--it is so hard to think about the torture Christ went through for our sins. I stamped Confetti Cream CS with the Linen BG stamp (SU retired) in Creamy Caramel, then overstamped the cross in Really Rust. I sponged over the image and around the edges with More Mustard, then followed around the edges of the piece with Chocolate Chip. Then I used the cracked glass technique--tutorial found HERE. In hindsight I should have used one more layer of UTEE, but oh well. After I cracked it I rubbed Choc. Chip ink into the cracks. I used the same stamping technique, minus the cracked glass, on the sentiment. I used some retired SU DP for the background. The corner looked a little bare, so I added some flourishes from and Inque Boutique set I have, again in hindsight I wish I'd done something else. I used an Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware label holder, brads, and oval clip, and stained a piece of twill tape with ink and tied it to the oval clip.


I put up the cards I posted here the other day on the sign up posters for my stamp class at church, now there is ONE person signed up LOL! DH said, maybe when it is closer to the date more people will sign up. I hope you all enjoyed this card, and that you're having a great week so far!
