Christmas Cuties Angel Banner Card

by Joanne James8. October 2015 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a great colour challenge for you:

 

Now I must confess that if your're thinking this card looks familiar, it's because I cased the layout from the current seasonal catalogue. Here's my Christmas Cutie angel card: 

I used Lost Lagoon for my base, which I stamped the dots in Versamark and heat embossed in silver. I coloured a piece of the Color Me Irresistible Speciality Designer Series Paper in Lost Lagoon and layered this on a piece of silver foil, then built up my layered banners in Silver Glimmer, Perfect Plum and a silver metallic foil doily before adding my final banner of watercolour paper, onto which I stamped my angel and coloured using inks and my aquapainter. A few rhinestones, some silver glitter for my halo and silver corded trim finish my card.

There is something quite theraputic about colouring with an aquapainter; this card inspired me to colour in a few more cards too which I'll share with you in due course. 

Do visit the other Design Team members to see how they used this week's challenge colours; there's lots of inspiration over on their blogs too!

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Your card is pure sweetness! And now that you mention it, it does look familiar but not because of the catalog but your angel really brings to mind a precious moments figurine! I love the shadow around the angel and her halo, it really gives her a 3D look. Very pretty!
