Christmas Angel

tisdag 13 september 2011

Hello! A new week is already up and running. 
A truck with timber tore down our telephone line for over a week ago so I have not had phone or internet in the last week.
Therefore I have not been able to lay out my post until now, but better late than never.
It's a Christmas card but it has not the traditional Christmas colors.
I hope I feel as good about the cherry red / purple / brown colors in December.

The angel from Crafty Individuals is painted with Copics, and the wings were also painted with Twinklings Heavenly White for more shine.
I cut it out and placed it over a Spellbinders cirkle cut out, that I first stamped with notes from You Do in Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.

First I gave the music swirl from FabScraps one layer Distress crackle paint, then one layer Glossy accents and so I immediately strew over glitter.

The papers are also from FabScraps. I have torn and sponged the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.
Merry Christmas was stamped directly on the paper and heat embossed with Cherry embossing pouder, both from Reprint.
Here is the inside...

I have also used a punch, sewing mashine,pearl Paper Pen, tulle and twine from my stash.
