Angel with vellum wings
The stamps I've used are an angel one from Kort&Godt, but since her wings weren't very visible I used other stamps (brand unknown) to make wings with vellum and white EP. I cut around the head the get the wings inserted and tucked behind her head. The sentiment on the tag is from a Hero Arts set and the background is a Tim Holtz one.
I was inspired by this photo:
I usually find photo challenges quite difficult as I can't seem to concentrate on just a couple of things. But with this card it was quite easy. First, pink paper, gessoed and stamped with the angel. Dies chosen as they came to mind seeing the shape of the pink bench. Additional wings as above the bench. The white ribbon with roses, as in the photo, to add some more embellishment, along with the white seambinding ribbon and tag. And the pearl string.
Then I tried to mount the die cut panels onto a plain white card base. I thought it didn't work, looked bland. Then I tried an embossed snowflakes background. Too messy. Then, as seeing the pattern on the mirror in the photo I thought of my Tim Holtz stamp. I chose to keep the wooden like look by using kraft paper and heat embossing with white EP.
This was a fun card to make, I had flow and found everything I needed to use quite easily - which isn't always the case...
So this card is for:
TIME OUT Challenges - #70 Photo Challenge
Always Use Rubber - #4 Things with wings
