Winter Angel

Welcome to Tuesday! I have a card for you this morning using Winter Angel from Karen's Doodles. Isn't she just lovely? This card has a ton of details that you might miss in the picture, so let me tell you what I've done. I colored her with copics and used gold Smooch for the wings. I added white MS glitter on her fur trim, and 2mm Swarovski crystals to the medallions on her dress. I colored and cut a 2nd image of her using just navy blue and used this for her shadow. For the houses in the neighborhood, I stamped them with a CTMH stamp set, using Versamark on the colored CS, and then embossed with some glittery embossing powder, and cut them out and popped them up. For the snowy background, I ran the CS through the cuttlebug with the small snow folder, and then colored over all of the raised areas with a clear sparkle Sakura pen. Finally, I stitched my layers together using metallic gold thread.

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Creations - Stitching
One Stitch at a Time - Stitching
Corrosive - Wings
Fussy and Fancy - Dazzle Us
