Christmas Angel

This month the challenge over at Sundays with Crissy is called "Christmas is coming" or "Winter is here". I bought this beautiful Angel image from Whimsy stamps when they had their amazing sale last month but hadn't had a chance yet to use it. This was the perfect opportunity.

This month Crissy is giving away one digital stamp to the first 12 entries. But it has to be a card made specifically for this challenge. I am so glad I found some time to make this!!


I decided to make a clean and simple card with it. The image has been colored using Derwent coloursoft and baby oil for blending. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the card front. The card front was popped up with some dimensionals. I cut out an oval with a nestabilies shape and then stamped the sentiment (stampin up) behind it. The image was cut out and adhered next to the sentiment. I added lots of stickles to the image and also the embossing but it is hard to see in the photo. To finish it off I added a sheer white bow.


I am also so very excited that I received the Artist's Choice award from Crissy Armstrong for my card for last month's challenge. Thank you so much Crissy!!



This is my second post for the day, be sure to scroll down for the first post using my brand new stamp from crafts UK for my Stamp Something Design Team card.

Have a great day,
Ellie.

Just beautiful how you did this. I love the embossed paper and then the scalloped cut out. The angel looks so pure in white and with glittery wings too.
Oh and did you know that you are one of my first twelve players this month? That means you get a free digi image of your choice from my collection!

Congrats on your award, how fun, but I can see how your cards are so pretty. Love the angel card with the white, letting the angel just stand out and the Santa card is just adorable sitting there with his penguin friend.
