I Love Angels


I am using some of the new stamps by Impression Obsession and what fun.  This little lady is Angelica.  She can also be purchased as a Clear Stamp Set.  Just a note that I pretty much emboss all of my images from the backside with a stylus on an embossing mat.  The minute I saw her I thought "Perfect for paper piecing."  Below is how I did the rest:

IMAGE:
  1. Stamped Angelica on white cardstock with Memento Cocoa Brown.
  2. Painted the first images face, hands, and feet.
  3. Used Stickles Diamonds glitter glue inside her wings.
  4. Used Flock for the halo and wing edges. (It wasn't white enough for me so I applied Fluid Chalk Popcorn ink with a paint brush on top of it.  I squeezed the bottle just enough to wet the top opening.  I laid the image aside to dry.)  You could try Flower Soft too.
  5. Stamped Angelica's head and painting hair, cutting out and mounting on head.
BACKGROUND and GOWN:
  1. Inking Cover-A-Card Ornate Snowflakes with Fluid Chalk Warm Red and stamped on white cardstock twice length-wise with Mega Mount. 
  2. Trimmed a piece to 4"X5.25" and applied the bottom half of IO Border Duo 1 to one of the bottom of the 5.25"H sides and mounted to white cardstock base.
  3. Stamped arms and skirt of Angelica on piece of Ornate Snowflakes with Memento Cocoa Brown, cut out and mounted on Angelica with 3D pop-dots.  Added embroidery string bow and pearl stickers to waist and skirt.
  4. Applied a piece of white cardstock to a Spellbinders Oval Deckle die, used a dauber to add Fluid Chalk Warm Red around the edge using die as stencil as shown.
  5. Stamped Heavenly Holiday with Memento Cocoa Brown to oval and added 6mm pearl heart.
ASSEMBLY:
  1. Mounted oval with image to background.
  2. Mounted white organdy ribbon and bow as shown.


INSIDE and ENVELOPE:
  1. Two Deckled Oval dies were used with a piece of Ornate Snowflake background and used like THIS.
  2. A piece of the die cut from Border Duo 1 was used for the lower left front.
  3. The die itself was used on the flap of the envelop as shown.
I am posting this Monday evening.  If you want to see my cute Halloween card tomorrow, 09/04, on the IO blog go HERE.  That's it for this visit. Thanks for stopping by to look and share!!!
