Angel of Joy

Hello everyone !

I'm back with another Christmas card and I used stamps from Chocolate Baroque again.     This one was created using their now retired stamp set 'Angel of Joy'.  She is a large stamp & I think she is beautiful !  

I'm entering this card into the Out of Hat Creations challenge #28, as the current theme is 'create Christmas card or tag' before it closes today.   The Design Team create beautiful work !





Stamps:  Chocolate Baroque - Angel of Joy & Snowflake Flourish sets.
Spellbinder Die: S4-322 Grommet Tags

I used a snowflake from the Snowflake Flourish set and stamped on purple card stock with Brilliance Platinum Planet ink for the background. 

The Angel was embossed with black on watercolour paper and coloured with my Tombows using a brush & water.  I used a Versamark pen on her wings and front panel of her dress & embossed with Kaleidoscope powder to highlight these areas.   I embossed 'Joy to the world' with dark purple and blended Milled Lavendar and Dusty Concord Distress Inks on the Die cut.   I layered as shown, added some silver holograph border stickers & ribbon.

You can see the glitter embossing a little better on the photo below.



Thanks for your visit, it's appreciated !
Have a great day,
Shirley

  8. isn't she exquisite? So much like your soul, Miss Shirley. Your blends of purple-magenta are striking together, and really pop with the white details. No wonder you coveted those snowflakes - they are unlike any others.
