I saw on Deirdre's blog that Maim Doodles challenge this time is Anything Goes. You can see it here. Well I still have a few Chrissie cards to make, so as I had downloaded some time ago this wonderful freebie,,( MDoo Angel) I decided to make a card for the challenge.
I resized the angel and printed it directly onto the card. I then reprinted on copy paper and cut out to make a mask. I masked the image and then sponged Broken China distress ink onto the card and stamped a large Papermania snowflake onto the background. I then removed the mask and stamped the Merry Christmas ( from a sparkle clear set by Hero Arts) in the centre of the star. I then coloured the image with distress inks and iridescence medium for some shine. I used my paintbrush to put some Stickles ( Frosted Lace) onto the wings. Added some silver stickles to the snowflakes and my one-layer card was done.
Because it has some shimmer and shine, I am entering Hero Arts challenge as well.
I see some of my American friends are feeling the cold a bit(!!!) I thought I'd let you know we are having a wonderful weekend of hot sunny weather. Walked down to the beach today, Hubby swam ( but it is still toooo cold for me) I just lay on my towel and read my book!!!!!!!!!!!!!
