Crown Of Thorns





Spent some time at a friend’s house and she was working on her Easter cards.  She was using this amazing image from Our Daily Bread Designs called Crown Of Thorns.  She was kind enough to let me borrow it to make this card that I hope shares the true story of Easter.



I decided to use Seedless Preserves Distress Ink for the image and popped it up on top of layers if black, white, and purple.  The purple was to represent royalty and I used the Union Square die from  Sue Wilson Dies’ New York Collection.  I loved the cut on the outer black layer with the look of rays spreading out from the image.  I sponged a little white pigment ink on parts of the black  and added small black metal brads to represent nail heads.  I wanted to add a cross so I die cut an embossed piece of white cardstock with Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval Window Die and cut out the center to use behind the image.

Thanks for visiting,

E. Marie
