I thought it was appropriate to make an angel card today. My friend, Crissy, was the featured stamper on Splitcoaststampers a few weeks ago when I was out of town. I have been meaning to do this challenge for awhile, so today I got it done.
Crissy is a phenomenal artist and stamper. She is an artist for High Hopes stamps and she is such an inspiration. I created this card with her style in mind. I basically cased a few different cards in her gallery to come up with my own tribute to one AMAZING stamper.
The main image is stamped and colored with prisma pencils and gamsol. I embossed the flowers in the background. The green strip across the middle is stamped with Canvas (SU!) and I added some white Daisy D's faux stitching tape that I got from Jacksonbelle's online store across the top and bottom of this panel.
Finally, I added gel pen accents to the scalloped frame around the angel. A clear flower from Heidi Swapp and a button complete the card.
Materials Used: Stamps--Angel and Sentiment (High Hopes), Canvas and Pocket Fun-flower (Stampin' Up!); ink-brilliance black, celery, brown; cardstock-turquoise, celery, white, red; flower (Heidi Swap); button (SU!); gel pen (SU!); thread; white embossing powder; heat tool; versamark; Daisy D's faux stitching tape; Nestabilities; prismacolor pencils; gamsol.
