Vintage Angels

This is my project for week 6 of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style challenge. I am also submitting it for Golda's cracked glass challenge on the CardSwaps fall online crop. I thought the antique angel image would be perfect for this technique.

Linda's inspiration tag for week 6 of her challenge appears below. The inspirations for my card were the angel, the doily and the Peace sentiment.

Since I don't own any angel stamps, I used an antique post card image that I downloaded from Graphics Fairy. The sentiment is actually a picture font. I just typed "h" and it appeared like that. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils. The background is embossed with a Sizzix Impressions plate, scissor distressed and inked with Vintage Photo distress ink. I sprayed the doily with some homemade glimmer spray. I painted the flowers with antique gold metallic paint and added a bead cap and pearl to the center.

Thanks for stopping by!
