Ink #196 - Paper Piercing

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational - paper piercing. I chose to pierce the paper by stitching around the edges.

The sweet angels image was sent to me my teamie Nonni and they are my favorite angels. I wish I had this stamp myself, but it seems to be a retired one. I colored with Promarkers and a white gel pen. The wings and stars have glitter glue on them. The background has a thin coat of watered gesso, and I used a stencil for the stars and a script stamp. And, again, I used my favorite chipboard sentiments.
Please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies.

This card is also for:
ABC Christmas Challenge - S and T are for...  (Sparkle)

Fabulous card, these angel are really beautiful, perhaps you could search on eBay to see if could find a pre-loved one. Brilliant design with the gesso on kraft, it gives a particular look to the background! Love your stitching!!!

These are my favourite angels too, Pia ... and you've showcased them beautifully here! There's a lovely warmth in the colour palette that contrasts wonderfully with the crisp pops of white in the starry background ... gorgeous! Anita :)

Nonni said...

You've done super job with the angels Pia -it looks like you die cut them although I know you must have fussy cut them -so skillfully done! Let me know if you want more angels and I'll stamp more for you. Love the shabby look of this card. xxx
