Rejoice - Easter Easel Card

Here is one of the three cards my card classes are making this month. I LOVE Easel Cards.

Easter will be here before we know it so my classes are focusing on Easter this month. 

I used the Rejoice Stamp Set from CTMH. I stamped the cross and sentiment in thistle Ink. 
The background was dry embossed with the CTMH exclusive Damask Embossing Folder on Thistle Cardstock.  I then rubbed my Thistle Ink pad lightly over the top for added dimension. 

The egg was cut from the CTMH Exclusive Art Philosophy Cartridge

The crystals on the cross started out as clear but I colored them with Shin Han Peony Purple Alcohol Marker.

I needed a Birthday Card on Saturday so I used the February Stamp of the Month (SOTM), called Balloon Animals. I used the Monkey Balloon and stamped it twice. Once in Desert Sand and again in Champagne. I just trimmed out certain parts of the champagne image and glued it to the Desert sand image. Then I used the Cherry Pink Shin Han Marker and colored in the mouth area and drew on a mouth

The background was stamped with the ink blots stamp set, then dry embossed with the Arrow Embossing Folder

I punched a strip of white CS with the Chevron Border Punch and lined it with Red Shimmer Trim.
