Funky Fossil - Folksy Christmas Angel Card

Today I've had a play with an angel, which is part of the Funky Fossil "Folksy Christmas" clear stamp set.

I started by using Distress Oxides Inks in "Blueprint Sketch" and "Chipped Sapphire" with a blender to create the blue background.

I then used "Mustard Seed" Distress Oxide Ink through the Funky Fossil "Retro Starburst" stencil to create the star background.  I added white dots between the yellow stars to replicate a starry sky using a Posca pen.

On a white sheet of card, I stamped the angel shape using a Versafine Clair Ink called "Cheerful".

I painted the angel hair using Distress Oxide Ink "Squeezed Lemonade".  For the face I used "Tattered Rose" and for the cheeks "Picked Raspberry".

I used a gold glitter Signo pen to go around the edges of the angel and the detail on the wings.  I used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen to colour the neckline and waist detail of the outfit.

Finally, I mounted the blue background onto a white piece of cardstock.  Stamped the word "Peace" using Versafine Clair "Bluebelle" shade of ink.  I then adhered the angel to the middle of the card using foam pads to provide some dimension.
