Angel In The Clouds

I adore these sweet images from the newer Angels stamp set from C.C. Designs! So precious!! But....I'm having a hard time coloring them!! I stamped out a whole sheet of these, colored them with my alcohol markers, and don't like any of them. I've also tried coloring them onto water color paper with the same disappointing results. This one is stamped onto white Shimmer paper from Stampin Up, it does hold up well to water coloring, which is how I've done this one.

Still not totally happy with the result, but she's much better than the rest that I've done! I've used Distress inks again, and stamped the ink onto a large acrylic block, then a water color brush with water added as needed. I just can't seem to get the shading that I see others get when coloring this way, and I've watched many videos!! :) But, she's still a cutie no matter what!!

The starry background is stamped from an image in the December KOTM from Unity. The clouds were punched out and lightly sponged in blue. The sentiment is from the same set, and love that it fits perfectly on the cloud! I wrapped some silver thread around the bottom before attaching it all.

I did stamp the inside of this one as well, as they will be going out in the mail soon.

I have almost half of the Christmas gifts I'm making started. Once some of them are decorated, I will share a pic. 

Thank you for visiting!
