Holly Edges with an Angel

Hello everyone, I hope your day is going well.

I have a design today using the beautiful Holly Edge from Chocolate Baroque's new Christmas Edges and an Angel from Gothic Angels stamp sets.


The background is Seedless Preserves and Festive Berries Distress Ink using the Acrylic Block technique.   After it dried, I flicked a little water over it.   I stamped the Holly edge and sentiment with Seedless Preserves Distress Inks.  I embossed the pretty Angel with silver and coloured her with Inktense pencils.   I cut her out, attached to the background and added glitter to the bottom of her dress, wings & halo along with the pearls on the background.


Thanks for stopping by,
Cheers,
Shirley

  10. The pearls make a very striking statement on this & really pull the eye in toward the image. The glittery framing echoes both the pearls & the glittering of the image.

  19. Oh my, you will get me into trouble with this CB stuff! I mentioned to the owner at Betty's on Sat, this would be a good line for her to stock. She didn't know about the company. I hope she can get involved with it (then again, maybe not! LOL). This is lovely, and the marbled effect on the background was wonderful. I can't get that effect with the ink block technique. You know I love that angel, and your pearl trim ...wow! Super the way you did the pearl header on this beautiful card. TFS
