Serena the Christmas Angel

Hello creative people, I hope you had a great weekend.

I could not resist ordering some of the new Chocolate Baroque Christmas stamps including the gorgeous Christmas Angel Serena.  The actual image has Christmas Roses at the LH bottom corner but I've changed it a little by adding the die cut Poinsettias over them.




I stamped Serena with Majestic Blue Versafine ink over a background that I created using Distress Inks (Wilted Violet and Peacock Feathers) with water on my craft mat.  Using a brush I added water to her face and neck and highlights and then blotted with a paper towel to remove the ink.   I coloured her with Prisma pencils and added white highlights with a pen.

I coloured the Spellbinder die cut Poinsettias with Distress Inks (Picked Rasberry & Wilted Violet).  I use a small finger dauber when adding ink to die cut flowers.  I molded them with a stylus on  the back on a foam mat.  I added beads to the centres with Glossy Accents.  The frame is also a Spellbinder die cut.


This is the actual stamp image:



Here is a closer look at the flowers, I used clear Wink of Stella to add glitter to them.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

This is so beautiful Shirley and the CB lady looks fantastic with the colours you have used and the pretty pink poinsettias give it lots of dimension and love the black bead centres, and she does appear to have a poinsettia in her hair so really complementary too. Hope you've had a good weekend. Take care. x

Hi, Shirley! She is beautifully colored, of course, and you have used amazing background mediums, but more than anything else, I am immersed in the peace on her face, and the colors you have utilized to capture that peace and make it radiate right into the viewer! Thanks so much for sharing your special design today! hugs, de
