One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #9

Hello everyone!  It's that time again for another challenge over at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge.  As usual it's anything goes with an optional twist.  What's the twist you say?  Why it's Angels!


I do so hope you'll join us in this angelic challenge. I don't have too many angel stamps but I do have a couple at least.  I decided to go with an oldie but a goodie. :-).  Check it out...


I started off stamping my angel and flourishes (both by Inkadinkado) in Versamark and embossing in clear.  Then I sponged a new colour of distress ink I got recently, Vintage Velvet.  Such a lovely shade of pink.  Dusty and soft.  Next I stamped some snowflakes (also by Inkadinkado) in the Vintage Velvet.  I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the snowflakes but it was minimal and impossible to capture on camera.  Then I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts) in Grey Flannel (Memento) ink.  I love doing non-traditional colours for Christmas cards. They often turn out to be some of my favourites.

Please go check out the other DT members projects as they are all fabulous as usual.  Hope you'll all come play along with us over at OLCCC!  I'd love to see you there!  Remember there's a prize up for grabs too.  :-)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - white plus one colour
Winter Wonderland - clean and simple
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge - use wet or dry embossing.
