It is my turn to host the fortnightly theme for the Christmas Card Club. I chose Angels and had a specific angel stamp in mind. It is specific all right...it is my only angel stamp!
It has never seen ink and I had grand ideas to heat emboss it in silver on a navy blue sky.
Well, I have searched high and low and can not find it. I have the stamp package and all the other stamps are there, but the angel is missing. Sadly, I believe I have loaned it out and of course have forgotten who I loaned it too.
In my search, I did manage to find this lovely angel, up cycled from an old Xmas card. I decided to use it as it is already what I had in mind... An angel in the night sky! The card had some lovely gold metallic embossed patterns on it so it looks quite sparkly.
I have matted in pearlescent purple as I have a couple of friends who love that colour. I added a Memory Box snowflake border from a snippet of the purple card, and added a few gold pearls to finish it off. I had a few teensy snippets leftover and cut Believe from my Tattered Lace die. It fit quite nicely on my angels robe and serves as my sentiment. I added a bit of gold fine cord just below the matted image, to tie in the metallic finish on the paper.
