I Believe In Angels

Oh, yes, I do believe in angels, in the real kind, those caring ones that reaches out a hand when you need it the most....hope you have met them too.

This angel is a Penny Black one coloured with Aqua Markers and Liquid Pearls. You can dilute the Liquid Pearls with water and get a more manageable paint, I use one of my clear stamp blocks when I prepare Aqua Markers and Liquid Pearls, lay a white paper under it so that you can see the colours well. Remember to wipe off the colours with a damp cloth when you're done.

I added highlights with an Uni Ball and a fair amount of Distress Stickles.

The sentiment says Merry Christmas in Swedish and it's stamped with Distress Inks. The design papers are from my scrap heap.

I'm entering:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge: Christmas In July
Cupcake Craft Challenges: Nr 39 Christmas
Moving Along With The Times: Favourite Things (The colour blue, dies, brads, Stickles, Penny Black stamps, Liquid Pearls, water based colours, water colour paper and using scraps)

Hugs
Maarit

P.S. You still have plenty of time to enter our easy challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts; use any Penny Black stamp or Stickeroo as an image and add a flower or two.
