MAKING A MESS

Hello Saturday Peeps,
Well - it's absolutely peeing down here today and I got soaked to the skin when I took Dog up the mountain this morning. I think it just waited until I got up there and the Heavens opened. Dog actually legged it back and went into hiding under the car  - I guess he doesn't like rain ?!!! hahaha

Anyhoo - I am here to show a card I made this afternoon using some messy stuff - texture paste and alcohol inks and sprays :-D



I used a die cut as a stencil and the background is the silver foil lid from a take-away carton, which I embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.
I added some machine cut snowflakes and the main image is  Angel Statue from the " Ancient Cemetery "  Plate 56  by  DESTEMPELWINKEL.  I did her in blue ink twice and cut out the second image of the angel minus the wings to decoupage up for 3D pop. The sentiment circle I got today from Bross Artful Designs. I then stitched my card onto some blue Chrimbo paper and then mounted everything onto a white card.
So, now I have managed to get the inks and stuff off my fingers and I am a happy bunny :-)

My card was inspired by the Christmas Angel Song which I found on YouTube.... it's just gorgeous and you can listen to it HERE 

Thank you for popping in.

  3. I hadn't thought about the Weeping Angels in Dr Who until Bad Kitty mentioned them, but now your fabulous image is reminding me of them, too!
    What a fun background you made.....so creative using the foil lid from the take-out. Looks wonderful with all the mixed media stuff you used. Very cool card!!
