Christ has Risen-McMahon Five Designs

 The entire New Release from McMahon Five Designs can be found HERE in the New Release section of the store.

This beautiful image from McMahon Vintage was colored in with Copics using a technique called Copic water coloring (Technique Junkies). The sentiment (there are two) are  freebies this week from McMahon Five Designs. I printed the image on a very shimmery card stock, and I painted in very pale tones to highlight the beauty of the scene. I added just a touch of Blue Ice Creative Inspirations Paint to the clouds.  The base card stock is called Grape Jelly, the next layer just behind the image is Amethyst Mica (and I used text weight) and the image is printed on Crystal (Stardreams) card stock.

 This is one of the free digital Easter sentiments available now at McMahon Five Designs. The flowers are available (Prima Calla Lillies) HERE and (Prima mini roses) HERE. The Opaline half pearls can be found HERE.
