FM245 Need to Believe to See

This is our last closing challenge for the Friday Mashup.  How incredibly sad I am to say goodbye.  My absolute favorite challenge!  I have been with the Mashup almost since the beginning, and I am feeling a little lost right now.  But, before we cry off into the sunset, let's play along with this week's challenge, a sketch and Easter.

Of course Easter is the highlight of the Christian calendar, with birth and renewal.  Spring is coming up blossoms and warmer weather and fresh smells.  And Vitamin D!  We can peel away some of the layers and get some!

I was thinking of sunrise Easter service.  Or the Thomas Kinkade image, The Sunrise.

I watercolored with Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie inks before die-cutting with the Sunburst die.  The sun punch-out was watercolored with Tangelo Twist, and to make it really vibrant, I also ink-smashed the circle into Tangelo Twist ink on a craft mat.

Does my card look like this week's sketch, maybe a little bit? 

The Mashup Challenge this week is:

  • Create a project with the Sketch. 
  • Create an Easter-Themed project. 
  • or Mash it Up!! and create an Easter-Themed project with the Sketch.

Have a great Easter season, Everyone!

This is stunning! Such a beautiful card! I haven't played along with TFM in a long time but I'm sure it's going to be tough to say goodbye. I'll save your blog! Like what I see! Happy Easter!
