Angel Joy

Angel Joy - I finished this little beauty this afternoon, finially!!! It only took me 3 days. I discovered that Copics will not cover Scotch brand quick-dry adhesive. I had done my paperdiecing first and when I went to color her, there was a small amount of adhesive that had septed out on her leg. The color would not cover that area and then the color began to build up in other places; so I redid the whole image. I also had a quick drive up to Oklahoma City to take some paperwork up to my daughter so that she can close on her house this week. It was a 3 1/2 hour drive each way. I am so tired, therefore I am destressing by card making.
Rick will be leaving for Georgia on the 6th of August, then he will be off to Iraq for a little more than a year. So a lot going on.
Back to the card-The image is Mos digital. I colored her with Copics E000, 00, 21, 25, 31, 50, BG10, B00, R20, 22.
DP is Memory Magic and ribbon from my stash. The pearls are MS I used twinkling H2O's on her wings after heat setting the ink. The Russel Court Hotel

Silver and Gold

Silver and Gold - This was a fun technique to emboss with silver and gold on black and white paper. I used a Stampin up stamp that I have had forever. The brads were glittered up with a new glitter that I bought at the convention. You just heat up the brad and dip it into the glitter and it sticks to the brad, more heat and WA LA, glittery brads. - bling it up - angels and glitter
