Guardian Angel


I've been busy running the last two days with little creative time. I was at my parents yesterday and played bunco last night. Today was my stamping club and valentine card exchange and back to my parents late this afternoon. In between all of that and the regular drop off and pick up at school, I just had to make this arch. The theme this week is guardian angels. It was such a perfect theme for my word this year. I do believe that I have a guardian angel, but I'm pretty sure it's a guy. I couldn't find a male angel, so this pretty lady will have to fill in.

The angel is stamped on a tranparency with stazon and cut out. I colored her with alcohol inks using a cotton ball to get color where I wanted it. There is stickles for sparkle and I adhered her to the background with crystal effects. I left her wings unattached so she can fly. The background is made with alcohol inks and edged with krylon gold leafing pin. The letters are some stickers that were waiting around here.
