Snowflake Angel

Hi everyone! I just realized that I had not shared this card with you! It's done a bit differently and wanted to give you the details!

The snowflake background is done with the Ornamental Snowflake set from The Angel Company. I used starry night Palette ink to stamp them and then lightly sponged on some additional ink.

The Angel (TAC) is stamped on vellum in Memento Tuxedo Ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I turned it over and colored her dress with Copic Markers. The wings are done in a two step process. Taking your stylus and a mouse pad, burnish or dry emboss the wings, being careful not to press too hard otherwise you will go through the vellum. After that is done, I used a white Sharpie paint pen and colored it all white. When you turn it over, the results are striking! Using sharp scissors, I trimmed all around it.

To get the Angel to adhere to the cardstock, I got out my Xyron and made it a sticker. The lattice border punch from MS came in handy to decorate the edges of the snowflake background and the navy cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!
