Relict: noun

a surviving species of an otherwise extinct group of organisms; also : a remnant of a formerly widespread species that persists in an isolated area
something left unchanged


Still using Rangers Spring Pallette colors:
Distress Stain, Peeled Paint
Dylusions, lemon zest, vibrant turquoise

Used my Distress Marker, antique linen dipped in Distress Stain, vintage photo for the cross ( love this technique )
Had to use Tattered Angels, popsicle for the lavender color

Carmine Tango - font

I wanted to use the Ranger palette in the background, creating a soft backdrop for the cross. I dropped a small amount of ink on a piece of wax paper, added water and painted the colors with my water pen. Heat set and then spritzed with water and blotted.  Printed the saying directly on the card. My cross is outlined with Faber Castell PITT pen.
And #23 of 30 Mother's Day cards in 30 days
( I'll confess, I barely made this one in time, so I went for a great printed paper and embellished it some. )
Prima - paper
Cricut - French Manor cartridge, p. 39 ( bird )
Helmar - Gemstone Adhesive
Close to my Heart - marker

great looking cards! and I love all the spring colors! RELIC! I just realized my husband wasn't using that as a term of endearment when he called me his old relic! Good thing he is asleep or I would give him an earful! Are you going to link to WOYWW this week? Vickie

Such a moving Easter card! Love the Ranger Pallette! The way you hung the purple vestment piece is just inspired. Glad you took a close up of the Mother's Day card, as I loved seeing the 3D flower work you added!
