Watercolor Cross


I made this cross by using Garden Green and So Saffron inks with an Aqua Painter on Watercolor Paper. The pattern on the cross was created with Glossy White Cardstock and Blushing Bride Ink. Then, I used two dies from the Cross of Hope Die Set for cutting, and glued them together.


The beautiful vine surrounding the cross was made with a Hold On To Hope stamp and Pear Pizzazz Ink. I used more Pear Pizzazz Ink with a Painted Poppies stamp for the “splotches” on the lower portion of the card. 

“Easter Blessings” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

After attaching the card front to the Pear Pizzazz card base, I added some Iridescent Sequins.
