Sweet Angel and Baby

Hiya folks!

Happy Halloween to you all! Not that I celebrate it much, not into all that Trick or Treat stuff. It can get really scarey for older folk having kids throwing eggs and flour at your windows when you don't answer the door.

On a nicer note, this card is celebrating the birth of 'You know who' - won't say his name in case it offends anyone out there (Political Correctness gone mad!!). Besides, I don't do the religion thing in a big way anyhow. Christenings, Weddings and Funerals is about all I do. I prefer to worship Mother Earth and all she does for us.



So, my card today is going into two challenges. First up, the sketch, provided by the lovely ladies at Delightful Sketches - thanks girlies!

Then at The Pixie Cottage the theme is 'Celebrate!'

The image is one of my own again, available now at Delicious Doodles, my blog shop. I have also separated the Angel and the Baby, so they are available on their own too.

I coloured them in with the usual watercolour pencils - blended with WATER, for those who have asked in the past - no need for those funny blending pencils etc. . . Then I layered with foam pads, and added some gold stickles on the halo's and wings.



Papers are Tinker & Co, ribbon from the stash, bought at ebay I think. And that is it! Done!

Now to go get the kiddies some lunch. . .
