NOTE:  SORRY THE SNOWFLAKES SLIPPED WHEN TAKING PHOTO DIDNT NOTICE UNTIL UPLOADING.  HAVE PUT RIGHT.

For this project I used a digital image of Mo's Digital Pencil called Michael.  I coloured with copics, spica, and glitter pens.  I used stickles glitter glue on the wings of the cherub and after masking the image used a stipple brush and 3 inks to create the sky.

I kepted this simple, The textured grey backing cardstock was from Crafters Companion (I used a cuttlebug to emboss - script and polka dots) and the Silver mirri was from Create and Craft.


I used a Marianne star border die to which I criss-crossed some ribbon and added a bow.

I embellished with a large petaloo flower and a couple of snowflakes which were cut with Magnolia and Marianne dies

Finally I added more stickles glue to the snowflakes and a couple of pearls completed this project.

Hope you like what I've done with this image.

Best wishes,


CHOIR



For this project I used a Sarah Kay stamp - not feeling very motivated I came across this cute stamp and forced myself to make a card.  I coloured with copics and used gold brilliance ink to distress around the image creating a angelic glow.   Then added a thick layer of varnish.  (by using spray varnish and building up layers.)


I decided to keep the card quite plain by embossing white cardstock and matting and layering on some gold backing cardstock. 

 I used
  • Marianne embossing folder
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder
  • A border embossing and die cut
  • Marianne flourish dies
  • Marianne poinsettia die


Then I added tiny gems, clear gems and pearl embellishments.  Finally I used stickles glitter to
sparkle the flourishes and poinsettia.

Hope you like this, best wishes
