WoJ & Colour Create: 'Angel'

Hello again, here's my entry into colour create which this week is red & green and also managed the optional extra of 'wings'. I've used another of the upcoming WoJ release (on 22nd - only 3 more sleeps now or 2 if you're up late enough Sat to catch the start of it).

It was another sunny day today so had trouble getting the lighting right. The first photo is a touch too yellow but is nice and bright and the 2nd photo is too grey but it shows the green inside edge on the right which highlights the scallop border when it's laid flat. so the true colour of the card is somewhere between these two photos! Still didn't manage to catch the glittery sheen in her dress or the 'angel' gems though!

This little angel is just perfect for confirmations and christening cards as some of my DT teamies have shown but I think she's pretty as a normal, run of the mill angel too! Her little bob haircut is just too cute. That's all for today. Enjoy the rest of your day.

  • Images: Angel, all the swirls in the background dp and the sentiment from WoJ, released this Sun. I've cut out angel and the sentiment and stuck on with foam pads for added dimension.
  • Colouring: Copics and watercoloured touch of Sakura stardust pens over her dress and hairband
  • DP: Just the one sheet from a Laura Ashley paper pack. Not sure of name but it has some wonderful flocked designs in there and this is 1 of them. I've just stamped swirls all around the velvet flocked roses then added faux stitching around the edges with a green stardust pen.
  • Others: MS doily lace punch for the border, 'angel' gem word and satin ribbon to finish.
