Penny Black Challenge - All my Favorite Things
Hello everyone - today I decided to join in the challenge over at Penny Black - I actually have 2 favorite things at Christmas - snowmen and angels. I decided I could not combine the 2 on one card so I choose angels this time. The adorable angel is from Penny Black - Mimi's Christmas set (the entire set is so cute!!). I inked her with versamark ink and embossed her in gold. I then only colored in her face (E01,E02,E11) and her hair (YR21, YR23, YR24). Her dress and wings I paper pieced with some embossed vellum paper (the same paper I used in the background of the window frame). The window frame was cut with my Cricut Christmas/Noel cartridge as were the gold candles. The big star in the background is a Sizzix die cut which I masked with dark brown paper and added some gold string. The sentiment is cut from the gold DP which is also used in one of the layers. I embossed a gold frame around the ivory background piece - this piece was also run through my cuttlebug and then I softly added TH Vintage Photo distress ink to highlight the embossed swirls. I added a brown star brad in the angel's hair and attached her to a SU oval punch so she has something to stand on. That about does it for this card. Thank you for stopping by for a visit - this is actually my 2nd post today - not a common occurence for me that is for sure but with Christmas approaching very quickly - I am spending quite a bit of time in my craft room. I hope you have a wonderful Monday and the rest of your week. Happy Crafting!!
Your stamping friend, Debbie
