Hallelujah!!

I was inspired to make this card the other day after seeing a photo in our church of a man with his arms raised in praise in between two torn black pieces. It reminded me of Christ's resurrection and his being the light in the darkness. The back piece is actually in a type of shadow box. I raised the black panel and the frame.

The subtle hills and sky were created with Pastels (chalks) and torn paper, and the black pieces were edged with white craft ink. The frame was ink distressed with Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink). The crosses were colored with Close to Cocoa (Stampin' Up!) markers.

I made the sentiment by using my trusty Harmony Rectangular Stamping set with the Brayton Font. I finished off the card with Black Pearls (Kaisercraft).


Supplies:
Stamps - Crosses/Horizon (Stamp a Mania), Harmony Rectangular Stamping Set and Brayton Font (JustRite)
Paper - Ancestory (K&Company), Black (Prismatic), Neenah Solar White
Ink - White Craft (SU), Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink), Close to Cocoa Marker (SU)
Accessories - Pastels, Black Pearls (Kaisercraft), Clear ep, Dimensional Tape
