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.

Thank you for your visit here and for your comments which are always appreciated.
