The Old Rugged Cross

This is a variation on an Easter card I did recently. I started with a piece of Wild Dandelion CS and stamped “The Old Rugged Cross” background stamp by Divinity Designs in Warm Glow ink. Next I brushed Wild Dandelion ink using the Sunburst stencil by Gina K Designs. On a piece of white CS I stamped the cross from Easter Wishes by Sunny Studios in Warm Cocoa ink and colored it with Copics – E35 and E33. The drape was colored with BV000 and BV01. The sentiment was stamped in Wild Lilac. I fussy cut the cross. I stamped the tiny daffodils from Framescapes Window of Wishes by Theresa Momber in Warm Glow on either side of the cross and colored with Y08, Y13 and YG23. I ended up separating the flowers from the leaves, then paper pieced them together at the base of the cross. This made the other daffodils sort of fade into the background, so I stamped two more clusters of daffodils and trimmed off just the flowers. I outlined the leaves with a fine line black pen. I was quite pleased with the results. I’m entering this in the following challenges:

  1. This is beautiful Judy. I like how you used both the rays and the music notes too. It makes it very special. It has a very evident glow which makes the cross stand out.

  2. Judy, this is beautiful! I love your soft background that really makes the cross stand out. The flowers at the base of the rough, wooden cross are perfect.

  3. This is very pretty, and you did an amazing job on all of it! The background really is quite thoughtful with the hymn and the radiant beams, and the cross and flowers are lovely! Thanks for playing with our challenge this week at The Card Challenge!
