Rise and Shine Challenge
I made this for several challenges. Angie over on Christian Papercrafts Magazine is challenging us to a rise/shine theme. For the rise part I chose this new stamp set from Our Daily Bread designs called He Will Rise. I used the sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp . I used my Spellbinder's Grand Calibur to cut my circles (Spellbinders Standard Circles Small) and the inner square (Spellbinders Classic Squares Small). I love cutting more than one shape at a time with the Grand Calibur... something I never could do with any other machine. I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored with Copics. I then airbrushed the various layers. I popped up each layer on thin foam dots. I pierced around the frame, and added brads, thinking of the nails that pierced the Savior's hands and feet. For the punched element of the sketch I used my MS Pine Bough punch, because I thought it looked a bit like the thorns of the crown they placed upon His head. My base is Papertrey Dark Chocolate, the matting is SU! Pear Pizzazz.
I also incorporated the following challenges:
