You’re An Angel

Hi all!  I haven’t done any non-DT stuff for a while, so here’s my attempt at getting back in the fun challenge game!


I’ve been taking Alyce’s Skin and Hair coloring class over at Kit and Clowder and I’m seeing some definite improvement with my Copic coloring!  Unfortunately I haven’t done the clothing class yet so her dress and bow are a little messed up.

I used Angel Anya from The Greeting Farm and a sentiment from Fine Feathers from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I die cut the French Pastry Doily twice, once from white and once from pink cardstock.  I used my Evolution Advanced die cutting machine and it was super easy to do this technique: with the white cardstock, instead of using a shim to cut out all the details, I just turned the dial up a couple numbers to get it going through the machine really tight.  With the pink cardstock, I turned the dial down 1 number below my normal die cutting level so that the edges would cut out, but none of the details.  Then I glued the white cardstock over the pink and get all the pink details through the white doily without having to worry about all the little bits falling out!

Finally I added a bit of lace that I hand dyed with Distress Inks to match Anya’s hair.

This is for the following challenges:

I hope you like it and TFL!
