Paper-peaced Angel


The Christmas/Winter month long challenge at Just Some Lines is still going on.To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3!

I’ve printed this beautiful,serene Christmas Angel by Just Some Lines   directly onto the kraft card base using a verse editor for inserts as the template.The top half of her dress,face,hands,wings and hair have been coloured with Graph’It Markers.I just love how they’ve turned out 🙂 So pleased with the results.For the skirt I’ve paper pieced with some pretty Christmas DP and overlayed the floaty part with vellum.The star after being coloured first with a Graph’It Maker was glitzed up with some Stickles as was her halo.I’ve added a couple of strips of glittery self adhesive film,one die cut,topped with some wooden star buttons.They’ve been coated with more Stickles and threaded with paper twine.The sentiment has been stamped in the bottom left corner.
