Candi the Angel


Yep, Candi has been dressing up again.

This time I made her into an Angel, just for the festive season. If you want this image, it is available at my blog shop, Delicious Doodles.

I made this card for a couple of challenges, possibly three if there is enough bling on it??

First up the sketch, which I have only just come across at Pixie Cottage. Such a cute name I couldn't resist a peek. It is their first ever challenge and the sketch was lovely, so I had to have a go!!

Next up, the theme at Digital Tuesday Challenge, is 'Things with Wings', and must include a digi-image somewhere. Well you know me, nothing but digi's - well maybe some embellies here and there. . .

Last up, and this is a maybe here, La-La-Land want some sparkle and bling. I gold heat embossed round the edges of the card and the circle shape for some shiny sparkle, added some gold shiny to the flowers, a bit of metallic gold twirly ribbon, and dotted gold stickles here and there. Is that enough?? Or should I have loaded on some charms somewhere?? NAA! That would have been O.T.T.!!

The papers are all Tinker & Co. The flowers are made from punched daisy shapes, and a little gold star shape in the centres. I coloured Candi with my watercolour pencils as usual, and layered her up with foam pads for some extra dimension. So there you have it!
