Guardian Angel!

Little close up of thier Twinkling H20 wings

Good Afternoon all you lovely bloggers, I have another card to
show you, this one I am entering into the Sugar Bowl challenge
this week (13) which is Lilian's sketch also to include the option
to use Kraft colour in your design which I have done. They have
a fabulous prize where you could win the Gorjuss Set 3!!! How
fabby do is that!!! So for this card I have used DCWV Mat
Stack, Once Upon a Time! Fiskas border punch used. Image has
been coloured with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap, Vintage Photo
and Antique Linen, their wings I have coloured with Twinkling
H20s in Iridescent Blue, which really show up beautifully when
it catches the light. I also used a mixture of water colours to paint
the fluffy clouds that they are sitting on.
Lace was White initially but after soaking it in this little cup of
strong black coffee I have achieved the colour I wanted!

Once dry I ironed it and Hey Presto!
The flower I have made from different size punches and a
circle of lace I cut out. Centre flower is a button. Pearls on
the edge of picture are from stash.

Inside has a beautiful sentiment poem which I found here! Tag has been distressed in the same way, eyelet ribbon and lace from stash. Punched heart added to paper.
