He Is Risen


I'm so excited to show you this beautiful set from Flourishes for Easter. It is everything that is Easter to me;  faith, the Cross, beautiful sentiments that speak the message of Easter, and stunning illustrations from Marcella.  


This stunning cross with the lilies and flowers surrounding it are amazing.  I watercolored the scene with watercolor pencils as well as watercolor markers.  The card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 in size.


A really big close up of the coloring above.  It was beautiful to color up.  I'm so blessed to have this set in my stamping collection!

Be sure to see what beautiful Easter creations the Design Team has for you with this set!
