An Angel from the Realms of Glory!
I am all over ink and glitter and Glossy Accents!
It's a long time since I made a Penny Black card! This week's Challenge is monochrome. I picked up the gorgeous Dovecraft 'Noel' papers in a sale after Christmas, and was inspired to do a vintage colouring by the damask background paper and the glittery paper on the right! The third piece, with writing on, is a snippet by K and Co.
The sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday
I used Speccies, and glittered the angel's trumpet, wings and the stars. I got some Diamond Stickles at Ally Pally on Saturday, and they seem to pick up the colour of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink I used to stamp the image. I like the effect, though it was pure serendipity (sounds better than 'luck' doesn't it?!
The snowflake is a Marianne die, distressed in Vintage Photo and stickled. The lace is from stash, and the card candy was coloured with Natural Oak (Spectrum Noir no 91) and glossy accented. It all took ages to dry!
In spite of the sunshine, the sparkles don't really show :(!
I'm entering this into PBSC
and Sweet Sketch Wednesday
and Flutter By Wednesdays where 'Anything Goes' as long as there's a fairy, butterfly or angel!
I'm off to hang out the washing now - life's all go at the moment!!
Thanks for looking!
luv, Mags x
