Happy Easter!!! "He Is Risen" by ~Donna

Happy Easter my peeps! I'm so excited to share this project with you. After I make each new project I feel like it is my new favorite but I honestly feel that this will be one of my favorites for a long time... not only because I like the project but because of the meaning behind it. I know that there are a lot of crosses that have Christ on it but I like the empty crosses because, YES, what he did on the cross was amazing and I am so grateful that he died for me... BUT, He got off that cross and he rose again. It is one thing to die for your beliefs, for your family, or for your friends, but there is only ONE person who defeated death and it is because of Him that I am forgiven! I hope that you all have a wonderful Easter weekend and that you get to spend it with the people you love most!!!

 I embellished with my Bitty Blossoms from Spellbinders with some of my lace and Gold Pigment Powder from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ I also used Crafty Power Tape to adhere the lace, Dodz™ 3D to adhere the flowers, and 3D Foam Squares to adhere the crown.

I've been using watercolor pencils for the shadowing on my canvases but I used a Spectrum Noir alcohol ink pen on this canvas and I LOVE the way it turned out!!!

 The wonderful woodgrain in the background was made using Hazel and Ruby's DIY Decor Tape Wooden Grain. I also used some of their letter stencils and shapes for the word "Risen".

 I love how the peeled paint technique looks over the wood grain!

I made the crown by cutting up some crown dies that I cut out with an older Spellbinders die.
