Sparkling Angel


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous KennyK Stamps as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

This is the beautiful,if a little daring,Angel Nevaeh by KennyK Stamps.After printing her onto Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and changing her outline to brown in Microsoft Word she was coloured in a mix of Polychromos,for the skintones,and Spectrum Noir Pencils for the rest.A paper stump dipped in Spectrum Noir Blending Solution was used for smoother effect on her skin.I don’t actually dip the stumps directly into the bottle.I have a teeny jam pot with a piece of the sponge part of a kitchen scourer trimmed to fit inside.That way you don’t get too much on the stump nor does it suck up and waste the solution also.The rest was direct pencil blending.Disappointingly I couldn’t find my normal white Gelly Roll pen so had to opt for my Soufflé pen instead.Oh well, at least she is bright eyed and has a Hollywood smile 😉 You may just about be able to pick out the touches of glitter on her coronet of flowers,wings and dotted onto some of the berries on the wreath on the sentiment.It’s a shame the glittered areas on this pretty paper haven’t shown up…A die cut stitched holly strip adorned with sequins and a length of crochet lace have been used to decorate the card.
