Theme Thursday

Hello everyone! How you all doing? Hope you had a lovely weekend. Thanks for stopping by my blog, today's challenge is by Theme Thursday and is "Wings!" You can make a card, ATC, a piece of altered art, anything you fancy!

I have chosen to make another Christmas card. This lovely angel is by Stampington. I stamped her with vintage ink onto cream card and then cut around her. The papers are from the Old World stack and I mounted her on an oval cut nestie layered with some ripped mulberry paper. I gold embossed with this gorgeous swirl by Inkadinkado which was a bit scary as I embossed over all the layers- I was praying it wouldn't go wrong!!

The sentiment is then stamped on a piece of torn background paper to further carry on the vintage-esque look.

Hope you like!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stampington, Inkadinkado, See D's); Paper (DCWV); Assorted cardstock; Oval nesties; Mulberry paper; Gold embossing powder

Happy blogging! Hope to see you soon x

This is fantastic Steph. The colours are amazing, and the gold embossing gives it such a rich opulent look. Well done for holding your nerve stamping over all your layers like that...it was well worth it!
Love Sarita xx
