I used the theme from Merry Monday - MM#229 and the colours are from CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#204. I used my MISTI to position and stamp the angel. I used a pale grey ink and then added colour with Copic markers. I made sure that the inks were completely dry, ran an antistatic bag over the card and then stamped the image again using Versamark - the joy of the MISTI is that it stamps in exactly the same place. I heat embossed the image with silver powder. I then added a clean and crisp sentiment and used a die to cut the holes around the border. I added a layer of dark pink card to the inside so the colour shows through. I also cut a mat layer of dark pink card. On the white panel I simply added a Christmas greeting.
This is not your usual sweet and cute angel, this is an angel with attitude! I love the patterns on the wings and gown - they are similar to Native American patterns. I got the image at a craft fair about 4 years ago and I can't find details of the company on the Internet, so I think it's discontinued.
That's all for today. Do stop by tomorrow to see my card for our first challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown. See you soon.
