Angels are Magical

This week at the Stampotique Designers Challenge, SDC 188, Nellie has asked us to use our favorite background. I love techniques, and I especially love to make backgrounds. This background tech is from TH, and is made by using alcohol inks and blending solution on your craft sheet.



I used light and bright Alcohol inks on glossy card stock for this background.  I thought that the angel needed very little else to stand out in the magical clouds of color.  The wings were re stamped on another similar background I made, and popped up and slightly bent.  The word was cut from another stamp and also raised.  I choose to frame this simply.

I used Kate's Angel and Bar Code Text 2.

My reign as Guest Designer for the SDC has come to an end.  I hope you have enjoyed my artwork as much as I have enjoyed being here with you this month. Thanks to ALL the Designers, Kim, Carol and each and everyone of you for allowing me to play here this month.  I will see you all again very soon!

Hugs, Gerrie

What a delight it has been to see you as the Guest Designer for Stampotique Originals, Gerrie! A "win win" in my book! Your angel image is perfect, especially with her text wings--says a lot! This is one of my favorite backgrounds, too, Gerrie, and your result tells exactly why! Bravo!

I love the staining in this technique and a lovely contrast to the graphic nature of this lovely image. I need to pull her out and play!
