Inky Angel - Delicious Doodles Challenge

Good morning, hope you're all well. I told you I'd be back to my normal sporadic posting and I haven't let you down!!! However, that may all change as I've been really busy crafting lately and have to loads to show you. Sadly most of it isn't for me and so has to remain under wraps until I get the go ahead to blog :(

Anyway, I can show you this weeks card for the Delicious Doodles challenge which is Inspired By A Song. My inspiration was taken from the band A Day To Remember - All I Want. I had loads of fun creating this card cos I got to play with my inks and loads of stamps and sprays :0)

I printed the image Fallen out twice - one as a mask and the other as my working image. Once I'd cut the mask out, I coloured the other image with Promarkers and Prismacolor Pencils. I then masked the image and created a background using Distress Inks and Glimmer Mist for a bit of depth and shimmer. Once it had dried, I used a selection of stamps to create a scene around the angel. I then removed the mask and added Glossy Accents to her boots and Stickles to her wings. I took another piece of card and inked it to match the green on the first card for the easel base. The sentiment is taken from the lyrics and computer generated and then printed onto Safamat. I've then stamped some oak leaves in Stazon and popped a couple of punched flowers to finish.
