An Angel for a Change

I’m back with another card, hower this time not Henry Mouse, but this adorable angel image from Whiff of Joy, designed by Elisabeth Bell. In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful angel stamps  around and I knew from the moment I saw it that I just had to have it!

There’s a family member who collects angels, so I bought the stamp with this person in mind. I’ve also added a little angel charm; as with most charms, it was silver colored, which didn’t fit in with the style of the card, so I painted it with Crackle Paint (antique linen) and then went over it with distress ink (Tea Dye). The sticks are from an old Christmas decoration and I was thrilled to finally get to use one of the medallion flowers I bought whilst on vacation in the States.
