Golden Angel

Hi all.

Hope you are having a great day. Sadly it is raining, YET AGAIN, here in North East Scotland. Shame, can't get out, so I'll just have to craft some more then won't I ? - LOL!!

Three challenges for this card then. First one being at Midnight Madness, with me following their yummy sketch. Here it is:

Then at Whimsy Stamps Challenge they want Monochromatic cards. Yeah, I know there was black in the image. This lovely Milly Angel came from Tinker & Co, and is ALREADY COLOURED - so I don't get to do any colouring - no mess!! I have tried to be rid of the black though by smothering it with gold stickles. Not sure if it worked really, but whatever!

Lastly, the theme this week at Cute Card Thursday is 'Girly'. Well, I can't see a fella wanting this one, can you!!?

Like I said, the image is from Tinker & Co. I printed her out three times, cut out and layered with foam pads, and threw stickles at it!! Luckily the image comes with her sitting on a cloud, so it was perfect for the sketch! For the circle bit behind, I used some fluffy feathers that I inked with some gold round the edges.

The backing papers are from a set by Raspberry Road Designs. I made it the colour I wanted in my photoshop package, then inked the edges with some more of that gold ink. Then I used gold brads for the dotty bits on the sketch.

Right, off to do some serious work now then. MUST get my calendars made up, as I hope to sell a few on Saturday at the School Craft Fair. I just hope the rain stays off for that few hours. . .

Dang girl, you create the most beautiful cards!!!! Well, I had to do a double take when I read that you had black and tried to get rid of it with Stickles. Definitely works :-). Still sick, contemplating gargling with some alcohol.... lol... Hope to be back to somewhat normal next week... miss you guys.
