more Easter creations (by Miranda)


Hello there,
Today I want to show you the results of a joyful play with inks(stains) and the beautiful 'Easter Traditions' sheet which I've combined with the ' Texture fragments 'window' on the first card. I've used a lot of shimmer.....the window is embossed with white EP and I've used the stains and some water mist. I was very inspired by a card that Glenda created...... The sentiment is also from the Easter Traditions sheet. I attached some thin silver thread and embossed the cross with silver EP and coloured it with the distress markers. You can see the shimmer quit well on this photo.....







On the 2nd card I've used the beautiful large cross from the 'Easter Traditions' sheet. Also embossed it with white EP and used a lot of stains and water. The colours I've used were Broken China, Dusty Concord, Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass. I combined the sentiment with a lovely corner die from Cheery Lynn. And in the cross I have added a lot of gemstones.........always like those shiny effects.

 

Well you can see that I was very much inspired by those crosses and I really enjoyed the 'play' and that's what it is all about......enjoying the play! So have a nice day and give yourself a moment to play........and to enjoy..

  4. The combination of the Texture Fragments arch with the cross is quite stunning & I love the way you added that silver thread. The use of Distress Stains over the wet embossed stamping is something I long to try as soon as I get myself some Stains.
