Rudolph Day Angels

Hi there, once again I am turning up a day late for Rudolph Day at Scraps of Life at Scrappy Mo's, it's a good job the challenge is open until the end of the month. I actually made a card yesterday but I didn't like it very much so I made this one today using the same stamp. The colours are a bit unusual for me but I have had this paper pad for some time and not used it much so I thought today I'd give it a try. I think the paper is by Papermania and they are all brownish green and brown with a couple of very pale blue and beige ones. I wanted to use ivory card stock to go with these colours, but the only ivory I have is linen textured which is fine for making the base card which is 13cm square, but although I used the reverse side to stamp on because it is slightly smoother, you will see that there are still a few lines especially on the faces which I coloured with pencils.The rest of this LOTV image is coloured with Promarkers, with a yellow glitter pen for the halo and a coat or two of clear Wink of Stella on the wings. The image is cut with a Spellbinder die from the Elegant Ovals set, and the holly with a Britannia die.The little sentiment tags are from LOTV and the green silk ribbon and tiny red gems are from my stash.

Now I will link this up at Scrappy Mo's, for the Rudolph Day Challenge which is always Anything Christmas.
