Angels ...

A colleague of mine has a mum who loves angels, and she's got a birthday coming up. As a result (and without too much persuading) I headed over to the Crafts and Me site and picked up a few Sarah Burrier images. I coloured up a couple and took them, along with some other images I had stamped to see what she'd prefer.

The first image is one I've nearly bought many times. I love celtic knotwork, and it's such a pretty image. I printed it a bit smaller than I should have. (I've got a batch of cards that are a bit smaller, and I'm still working out the best size to print.) I coloured with Promarkers and mounted it on some sparkly black card and some pearlescent vellum. The paper is from my stash, and I've added a Spellbinders decorative circle and a doily.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Digi Haven where the theme is 'green',
LEJ Designs where they want 'things with wings,

I love this image. Again, coloured with Promarkers with some glitter added to the wings. I've finished with some borders cut using Tonic punches, and added even more glitter. The paper is from Papermania.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sparkle and Sprinkle where anything goes with gilitter,
Bunny Zoe where they want 'girly',
Tuesday Alchemy where anything goes,

And this is the one she chose! It's a Molly Harrison image from a Crafts and Me stamp. Again, coloured with Promarkers with glitter added to the wings and the star. The background is Coredinations Black Magic which I embossed using an Embossalicious folder and sanded. Although it's not obvious, I also added some glitter to the flower centres to break up the black a bit more. I've used a different pair of Tonic border punches, and finished with some sticky gems.

Fairies and angels are favourites with a number of people I make cards for, so I'm sure the other two won't be around for very long!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Papercrafts where they want us to 'punch it',
Emerald Faerie where they want bling,
Paper Playtime where anything goes.

Hi, Josephine - such beautiful angel cards! The cards and images are lovely. I especially LOVE that middle image - so wispy in the wind, and delicate in her femininity. Wonderful cards - So did she fall in love with the heavenly angel releasing the star? hugs, de
