Alleluia, He Has Risen! by Nanagahma

This is my depiction of the Resurrection of Christ. Imagine the amazement the 3 ladies must have felt as they went to the tomb of Jesus and found the stone rolled away and an empty tomb! And the bright light of an angel greeted them and said, “He is not here, for He has risen just as He said.”


This photo was featured on 2-20-09 by the following groups: “Digital Art Compilations”, “Living Christianity” and “Reaching Out: A Christian Mission”. It was also featured in the group “For The Love Of Jesus” on 3-17-10. It also placed in the Top 10 Challenge entitled: “An Easter Inspirational Card” for the group, “Inspirational Greeting Cards” on 3-24-10. On 4-24-10 this photo placed in the Top 10 “He Lives Forever” challenge.

To get this effect the following steps were taken:
I started with the flower and went to DreamLight Photo Editor to get the background and the cross images and star effects. I got the Matte effect from PicNik. I then went to Magic Photo Editor and placed the picture of the empty cross inside the flower. This cross is a crystal cross with porcelain flowers at the bottom which I then placed in front of a stained glass hanging which we have inside an octagonal window. The cross was sitting on a lighted mirror which rotated different colored lights as it turned.Then I used Professor Franklins Instant Photo Effects to add the writing.

    your interpretation is wonderful Sandy, you do so well with cards and card ideas

  • Thanks so much for your nice comments Lynda. I really appreciate your support! And you do so well with your scenery,nature, wildlife, and bird shots. I don’t have the wildlife here that you do so it’s fun to see the diversity! Put us all together and we have one huge smorgasboard, each “dish” tasting so good, but yet very different from the other. (Just thought of that analogy!) :-)
