Rose Angel

Rose Angel

Rose AngelSince I got confused with the dates, and entered another card into the Aurora Wings Challenge with a whole week to spare, I made this one for the Feathers and Fur challenge, so I could stick with “tradition” and come slithering in with a last minute entry :)  I used the beautiful Rose Angel by Mitzi at Aurora Wings.  I colored her up with my SN markers, and I must say, the language at times wasn’t too ladylike, trying to do so many whites, yet keep everything separate…..I think I managed (thanks to the language?)  I went through a lot of papers until I found the blue and pink DP….then distressed the edges of that and the image.  I die cut a piece of white card stock with a Tim Holtz die, and layered it over a pretty blue, for the background.  The lace that I found in my stash matched the lace on the angels dress perfectly!  I won some roses from Wild Orchid in a challenge recently, and I paired them with some other roses from my stash.  I die cut the feathers with an unbranded die, then inked the edges lightly with Distress Ink.  I assembled the roses, feathers and some die cut leaves and added some silver pearls tucked here and there.  A few more pearls balanced the finished product.

Angel CatI was given Angel Kitty to work with, and I was so excited, as this is the first time I’ve used a Wink Wink Ink image :) I was hoping that my new Prismacolor Pencils would arrive by the time I did this card, but they didn’t, so I colored it up with my SN markers, and added definition with my existing colored pencils.  Pet sympathy cards are so hard to make, as I am an animal lover, and know how hard it is to lose a fur baby.  But, I also appreciate it when others share in my grief, so I make sure I have a few sympathy cards on hand.  I incorporated rainbows with the background paper, and cut some clouds, freehand, for the kitty to rest on.  A sentiment that was cut with my Cricut, and a few gems finish this card off.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

SUYP Cat Lovers Challenge – #14 Furrything Goes
