Rejoice! Have a blessed Easter

This is a favorite technique - using a white embossed bg - this time, with an addition of chalk.  I used some of the Stamp 'n Plus powdered chalk - just received as a prize from Chalk ah Lot.  I mixed it with water and painted it on the leaves - it looks grey here but IRL is a lovely green.  I like the way that I could use the aqua brush and control where it is placed.  I added some gems, and butterflies.  The image is from my stash of pre colored items - ready to use when needed.  The mats and butterflies are a dark green for the spring look.

Oh, Dorothy, what a beautiful technique, and I love the depth and texture of it! Such a beautiful cross and lily as a precious reminder of the death and resurrection of our Savior Jesus! Yes, we rejoice indeed! So very glad you've joined us once again this week for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge! Hugs, sweet friend!

Nice work with the powdered chalk. It looks fabulous. I do like to paint it onto my cards because it makes me feel like a real artist. Gorgeous Easter card. Thanks for joining us at Chalk Ah Lot.
