Snow Angel

Today is the last day of  the Stampendous DT and the Coredinations team hop. All you have to do is hop along and leave a comment for a chance to win.

Today I am featuring the Black Magic Cardstock and the Stampendous Caped Angel:
 

I started with the beautiful Coredinations Protect cardstock. I dry embossed the cardstock using a Sizzix Embossing folder.  I sanded the embossed areas using the Coredinations Sand It Gadget.  I then poked a hole in the middle with a pair of scissors and started folding and rolling the edges back to expose the center. I sponged the rolled edges with a touch of black ink.

I stamped the Stampendous Cape Angel using black ink on white cardstock and colored the image using STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.   I stamped in the background the  Cling Jumbo Holly Season Set using a soft pink ink.

On the little tag I stamped the sentiment using the Altered Type Alphabet. I also added a touch of ultra-fine crystal powder on the wings and trim on the cape. (Can't see it in the photo but it adds a lovely glisten IRL.

Hop along to see all the other fabulous inspiration:


Thanks for stopping by!
