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!

For starters, I love your new blog header, it's very pretty and serene.
You card is fantastic! I think it's really cool the way you peeled back the center of the top layer to reveal the stamped image below. So cool! Seriously great card!

Really pretty shabby chic look to this card Sue and I like the blue added to the colour combo. The little buttons are a really nice finishing touch too.
