Sunny Tuesday....

It's Tuesday...the color challenge over on SCS - the colors in the challenge today make me think summer...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=247247

Even though this card is not summery...the one in my head is! Maybe later I'll have time to work on it but here is my first for today...
All images are by DRS Designs...www.drsdesigns.com
The cross (if you can't see it too closely, that is The Lords Prayer inside the cross - try clicking on the image - it should give you a close up - this time!) is stamped with Stazon white on a transparency and adhered to the back of a sizzix rectangle frame die cut. The frame is stamped with a DRS Designs plaid stamp, horizontally and vertically. The combination of the two is raised on pop dots. I adhered some October Cosmos Primas to the teal layer under the transparency and added some jewels to the centers. I made two photo corners and layered them and added some SU! silver cord to the top...I ran that through the center of another prima and tied it in a knot! Done! Oh, can't forget I pierced each of the corners on the diagonal.

I'm so glad I finally got a stamped image to look acceptable using the white stazon with the transparency!! The other times I have tried I think I was a little too light with applying the ink to the pad but this time I was pretty generous...I also found that the more I stamped the image, without re inking it, the better/clearer it looked! Another word of advice...don't press too hard when using the transparencies...it tends to smoooosh out the image! Practice makes perfect...or so they say!!!

See you soon...
