Beautiful Angel :-)


Over at Lia Stampz today we have a start of a brand new challenge and it's a very cute one.

Theme: Feathers



I used the very cute Baby Angel Christening digi stamp to create this card:



I used a cloud embossing folder to emboss pure white card and layered it onto some pretty mirror board card.  I colored the Angel with Spectrum Noir pens and used a white gel pan to make the polka-dots. I then cut away the cloud from the digi stamp and replaced it with a a cloud die cut from felt. I added a beautiful white feather. 


Have fun
