Yahoo! My first card for the new year but, to be honest, I made this in December but I am working on Christmas tags now. I made bookmarks back in December for someone and will show them if she says it is ok. I love my angel stamp even though it is old, probably 10 years now but I love angels and thought a scene was in order. I figured they are in a forest silently walking and giving gifts to people in need, either that or they are discussing the last bet the one angel won on the horses. I stamped my angels on white cardstock and then stamped them again on a sticky note. I fussy cut around their image on the sticky note and placed that image over top of the angel image on the cardstock. I took distress inks and coloured in the background with a sponge. I stamped the tree image over top and coloured in the tree and the ray of sunshine. I took off the sticky note and the angels were great so I coloured them in with tombow markers. I added a little grass, border stickers, and snow with the white gel pen.
I hope you like it. Did anyone watch the Golden Globes? I am all for solidarity but why use the colour black? I felt like it was a funeral...except for the sequins. Oprah's speech was excellent and I thought Seth Myyers was great as well. OK then, hope you have a wonderful day!
