Scripture and Lace

I haven't played at Our Daily Bread Designs for quite awhile, but couldn't miss the 8th anniversary SLC challenge. Gave me a chance to try the Faux Mother of Pearl technique again--this time using Platinum Pearl Liquid Pearls & sponging with Distress Inks peeled paint & bundled sage.  It looks like a rough surface, but it's actually flat & can easily be stamped on.  I used Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate with ODBD Vine Cross & used an applicator to color it in with the same ink. Then I added Distress Stickles Vintage Photo to make it stand out more without too much sparkle. The oval dies are by Spellbinders.  I don't have an Easter scripture stamp, so printed it from my computer.  The edges were inked a bit & the card front was stamped with a very old Magenta stamp using Memento Toffee Crunch.  Fun to use lace & ribbon from my considerable stash, along with some Hero Arts gems. This card is heading to my sister & brother-in-law.  I'm entering at City Crafter Challenge BlogCropStop & Double D. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
