The beautiful image was just perfect for a sympathy card and this one is heading out to a friend. To help me make up my card I’ve followed the colour challenge at Watercooler Wednesday. I substituted Distress Inks for the Stampin’ Up! colours listed. I used the Bermuda Bay (Evergreen Bough in Distress Inks) and Sweet Sugarplum (Victorian Velvet) for the dress and picked up the So Saffron (Scattered Straw) in the angel’s hair. I added in some Twinklings H2Os for shine with more Evergreen Bough on the wings. My neutrals are the skin tone and the white on the card. I did have the right Stampin’ Up! cardstock so I used Sweet Sugarplum as a mat.
Over at Allsorts they are looking for wings on things, which my angel has so I am entering my card in their challenge. I wanted to keep this fairly CAS but I thought it needed a bit of something, cue the bling courtesy of the prompt from Mod Squad, I’ve used rhinestones in matching colours to the image.
It’s really hard to see in the photo but I foiled the image before I coloured it, when held in the light it gives a lovely shine to the outline. The sentiment was also foiled in teal to match the dress.
