ello everyone. It has been raining like nobody’s bizz around here. It is crazy…bom rain and wind starts all of sudden. I am hoping the weather will give a little brake so I can work some flowers I got ahold of. Gardening has become one of the things I consider my “fun time”. Cake decorating is the other. I love making cute little things to put on the top of cakes and cupcakes. I will try to share sometime…the only problem with eatable art…doesn't last long. LOL. Well right now I cannot bake cupcakes as usual because we started Passover…and we keep all leavened things out of our homes. The Seder is the time to recount the exodus and the miracles G-d did and still does! This is a blessed season…and I believe it is raining blessings!
We are in a season where a lot of my friends will be celebrating Easter. Also a lot of my friends’ kids and friends’ greatkids will be celebrating their First Holy Communion. I prepared this card for a First Eucharist using Gilli Renaissance . For the 1st communion kids wear white in sign of purity…Gilli was lightly colored to give that crisp white feel of a white dress. The lace details were freehand using copic multiliner. I added a little shine using a light coat of stickles. Since Gilli is dressed up for such lovely occasion I also added some flowers (tiara like) at the top of her her…the tiara is holding a veil (used by girls only). I created the flowers on her hair using white pen and toped with Stickles.
This project was created for the challenge at SSCC, Rain & Water. I decide to interpreter the challenge in a different way where the shiny drops (sparkly DOTS) in the background are blessings casted upon the child and the water is represented by the gloss finish at the cross (made with a combo of Stickles & UTT) Before I added the shine and the gloss I embossed the cross with Sizzix embossing folder. The whole idea was to keep the feel of this card very Ethereal and Angelic…just like I saw many of my friends on their Special day..their First communion. I hope you like the idea! It is a lovely card to offer someone!
Keep in touch so you won’t miss when I share one more Gilli of the latest collection soon. Gilli will be shipping arriving this Thursday at Auntie Cindy at Stamping Scrapping …and to your home anytime you wish! Check it out!
