Tutti Designs - Easter Blessings with Cross In The Vine

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!
This week I'm using the beautiful Cross In The Vine Die,
which you can find right HERE.

This is my final Easter card of the year, 
and with it I send Easter Blessings to all of you! :o)

This was a fun one to put together. 
It was a simple process but I think it's very effective with the die.
To create the background I began with a piece of watercolor paper.
I began by masking a circle for behind the cross.
Using an assortment of distress inks, and an ink blending tool, 
I began with the lightest color and worked my way out, blending each color into the other. 
Finally, I removed the circle and inked it very lightly to blend.

Then I cut the die out of black cardstock, and adhered it in place. 
I matted the card front with black cardstock, and adhered it to a white card base.

Finally, I added several sequins.
Here's a closer look:

Other Materials Used:
Paper: Strathmore Watercolor Paper; Recollections - Cardstock;
Distress Inks: Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Shaded Lilac, 
Worn Lipstick, Black Soot;
Bling: Unknown Sequins.
