Hi everyone, today I’m sharing another set of Angel Christmas cards with you all!
To get my project started I stamped the large images from the Crafter’s Companion “Twinkle Angel” and “Angel Wishes” stamp sets onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface Paper using Spectrum Noir Finesse Alcohol-Proof ink in “Flagstone”. Afterwards I heat embossed using clear embossing powder.
Now I can start the colouring process: for today’s project I’m using my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers in the following colours: Spice for skin, Terracotta, Tawny and Chestnut for hair. As well as: Flint, Topaz, Jasmine, Hot Pink, Orange, Bud Green and Verdant Green. I use these markers in combination with a water brush and I keep adding layers until I’m happy with the result. After the colouring is done I add back in some highlights using a white gel pen. And I also added some Stickles in the colour “Diamond” over the wings to make them extra sparkly, using a brush (wash well afterwards, since these Stickles act like a glue.
Now that my focal points are ready I can work on my background: I die cut two rectangle panels each two sizes smaller than my card base. Onto these panels I stamped one of the sentiments from the Stampin’Up “Flurry of Wishes” stamp set using black ink.
Next I placed a cloud stencil (this one is by DutchDoobadoo but there are different ones available) over the panel and applied some Spectrum Noir Water-Reactive ink in the colour “Oasis” over the stencil using a stencil brush.
Time to put my cards together: I die cut two slightly larger rectangle panels from olive green and dark pink card stock and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered to some creme coloured linen textured card bases using one millimetre thick foam tape. To finish my cards I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut images on top, also using one millimetre thick foam tape.
And that is it for today’s Christmas card project! I wish you a creative day!
