That's A for Angel, B for Button and C for Chipboard.... a challenge over at Our Creative Corner. I have a few angel stamps and digis, but decided to use a Penny Black stamp I got last year. It is a very elegant Angel.
I cut a white tag using a Tim Holtz die and then white embossed my angel. Next was a mixture of distress inks to do a resist technique. Next I used a variety of other stamps to overstamp... a Hero Arts envelope background and a musical stamp. I had a scrap of the brown which I had white embossed the sentiment. I added with a ribbon, some silver foil punched snowflakes and gems. Then went through the few chipboard piece I have and found some Christmas ones I won several years ago from Jennifer McGuire. Found a perfect piece and added then finished with an antique button on the top of the tag. I got a nice surprise when I added this picture to the Penny Black group on Flickr.... Penny Black are going to send me a surprise... how cool is that!
And while I was searching through the chipboard pieces I found a little antique angel so decided to make another card.
I used a little Spellbinders die and stamped the snowflakes with a Hero Arts Snowflake cling with Soft Pool ink, added some torn Penny Black PP in the white and some glitter. Added the Sentiment in Stone Wash ink Faux stitching with done with a fine blue pen. I stamped one of the smaller snowflakes in the Stone Wash and glued it behind a clear button. I then added my little angel. I used the gold version of the music PP for the background and stitched with cream crochet cotton and distressed the edges.
I enjoyed making these for the challenge of OCC.
