Because He Lives

Happy Easter Weekend Friends!

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps released a new set in March- Timeless Hymns and I absolutely love some of the verses from the hymns in this set!!  

"Because He Lives, I can face tomorrow" and "It is well with my soul" reflect how I feel this Easter Weekend. 

Jesus Christ took on our sin when He died on the cross and rose again on Resurrection Sunday!!  We celebrate Jesus' Death and Resurrection this weekend and my heart is signing these hymns as I create this post!!  

I decided to design a few more CAS Mixed Media cards using Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Timeless Hymns along with the new March stamp of the month- Texture Tiles I (today is the last day to receive this set free with your $75 US order) and the previously released stamp set, Landscape Silhouettes for a few online challenges.  

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge galleries yet or the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog/FB page, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create the Brusho® background:

1). Lightly spray a piece of watercolor paper with water, sprinkle Brilliant Red and Turquoise Brusho® onto the panel, allow the powders to spread and use a brush to blend. Dry with a heat tool and repeat until you are satisfied with the color.

2). De-static the panel with an embossing powder tool, ink the image from Landscape Silhouettes with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Trim the panel and mount each landscape onto black cardstock.

3). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool (in the area for the sentiment), ink the sentiment from Timeless Hymns with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Add additional distressing with hickory smoke distress ink using images from Texture Tiles I and use a water brush to apply additional Brusho®.

4). Trim the background panel, mount onto a piece of black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the white card base.

5). Mount the landscape panel onto the card front with dimensional foam.  Use the Extra Fine Sharpie® White Paint Pen to add a few "stars" and sporadically  adhere some sequins to finish off the cards.
