This holiday season I wanted an angel stamp for cards. I'm not all that religious, but there is something comforting about the image of an angel. I searched around, but I didn't want anything too "cute." I found this beautiful stamp at Unity Stamp Co. called Maria Girl. If you don't know about Unity's Angie's Girls series, they are amazing. Although I didn't end up making holiday cards, I did make these two cards. Keep reading for more details.
Each card is a little different. I used Copic & Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Wink of Stella on the wings on both. With different sentiments, they each became different messages to send.
With the blue angel card I used navy card stock and velum on top of a preprinted card with gold accents. To highlight the gold in the card base, I added some gold twine under the sentiment. The use of BG4, BG3 and BG2 of the Spectrum Noir alcohol markers on the wings makes them look like suede, so I used the same concept for the sentiment circle.
For the pink angel, I used some grey undertones using copics T4, T3, T2 and T1 on the wings. I also opted to pull apart a grey and white piece of twine to use them separately under the sentiment. Using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to color the doily added a little more texture to the background, making this simple image stand out in her pink.
