I almost walked away from the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #153: Angels or Cherubs because I don't have any angel stamps, but then I realized I could easily papercraft an angel and this is the result.
I cut a 4"x 3.5" panel of Christmas designer paper and scored every 1/4" to create a fan fold dress. A pearl is slipped on a Maya Road crystal pin and the pin is adhered to the center fold of the dress. The top of the fan is pinched together with a bit of wet glue between each fold and a piece of wire wrapped around the top to hold it together until the adhesive dried. A little glitter washi tape is wrapped around the top part of the dress once it was dry.
The Delaney and Cheviot butterfly dies create the vellum and glitter paper wings and the sentiment is cut from red glitter paper and adhered to vellum banners.
This card is also being entered in Virginia's View Challenge 14: Layers and Dimension.
My second card is based on Laurie Willison's tutorial for Make It Monday #208: Ombre Stamping. I had feathers on my mind after capturing photos of this wild peacock when picking up my daughter from a friend's house. He is usually hiding in the shade but decided to take a walk around the yard while I waited.
I pulled out the largest feather from PTI's Feather Finery and stamped it with Tropical Teal, Hawaiian Shores and Aqua Mist inks to create the ombre design.
The sentiment was made with a Swoosh stamp and die and a few sequins and raindrops were added before the white panel was popped up on the teal card base. This card is being entered in the Seize the Birthday challenge in the Anything Goes category.
