Hello Readers!

Today starts a new challenge at Make My Monday Challenge blog. I do hope you can join us. The theme this week is 'Wings at Christmas'. The DT team did an excellent job of interpreting the challenge. Here is my inspiration card, Enjoy!!

The vellum halo reminds me so much of artwork of the past.
The stitched ends are the perfect touch.
I loosely added the vellum and black layer to the card.
To create the illusion the image is floating.
The angel was colored on black CS then colored with some Perfect Pearls
and Prismacolor pencils.

I choose the vellum sentiment to coordinate with the halo.

Naughty or Nice Challenge: NON#22: Show Us Some Wing

When I was a little girl I went to a Catholic School named 'Our Lady of Peace' in New Jersey. Every year we would travel through the church to see some of the stained glass artwork. I remember the angels with their halos over the Baby Jesus. This stamp is reminiscent of stained glass so naturally I went back to my memory banks and pulled the stained glass image from my childhood and here is the result. I hope I did it justice...

Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to spend with TheGrandStampede. I do hope you will join me again. Take care and see you soon.

All the Best,

Breathtakingly gorgeous, so delicate and such awesome colouring too. I have to set up another two boards now one for your Christmas creations and one for the ones that more than inspire me, the ones I would love to be able to create and design Karen x
