Christmas Angel Anya

When I saw the Little C's Weekly Challenge #11 sketch, I knew I wanted to play and use my Angel Anya from Pink Poison, but then I saw that the second part of the challenge was to create a Christmas/Winter card. Well, I could just use Christmas/Winter papers, but then I thought that wasn't good enough, so I created Christmas Angel Anya!

I wanted to use these little holly confetti leaves and itty bitty red rhinestones, but they wouldn't completely cover the bow in Anya's hair, so I cut a little piece of Eclipse Masking Tape and stuck it right to the rubber to omit the bow when I inked the image. Then I just peeled off the Eclipse bit and stamped.

I made her a Mrs. Clause kind of outfit, complete with flocked cuffs and trim on the bottom of the dress (the dress idea came from my hubby! Thanks Hon!!). I also put Stickles on her wings and popped them up for extra dimension. You can see all the detail in this close-up shot.

I kept the card pretty simple because I didn't want to take attention away from the adorable Anya! Hope you love her as much as I do!

Other materials used: patterned paper - Basic Grey (Figgy Pudding line), sentiment (Mixed Messages set) and Pure Poppy ink - Papertrey Ink; Copic markers; brad - Queen & Co.; flowers - Prima; white organdy ribbon - Pink Hedgehog Papercrafts; rhinestones - the Rhinestone Guy; eyelets and confetti unknown.
