Happy Thanksgiving week to all my U.S. blogging friends. Christmas is fast approaching and what better theme could we possible have for our new challenge at Aurora Wings than
With so many gorgeous Christmas images available at Aurora Wings, I had a hard time making a decision, but finally decided upon this lovely Rose Angel.
The design was a bit of a compromise. After coloring, I really wanted to inlay the outline of the Peaceful Dove die cut from Poppystamps directly into my coloring, but after cutting it out of the white, with the tiny pieces flying everywhere, I thought it best just to glue it on top. The Peace sentiment is from Tim Holtz for Sizzix, cut twice in silver and white and the card is bordered with peel off stickers and a mat of metallic blue card stock.
Here's a closeup of Rose Angel. She's colored with Copics and I'd say she's mid-way on the difficulty scale of the Aurora Wings angels and easily suitable for multiple cards. She's available HERE on AuroraWings.com and HERE on Etsy and I chose her because she's praying, which seemed especially appropriate for the sentiment. Aren't we all? You can see all of the AuroraWings angels HERE.
The color scheme is my second favorite for Christmas and I was swayed by a new angel outfit for one of my BJD's (ball jointed dolls). Yup, I collect all kinds of stuff! This little sweetie is Tuppance, by Rose Bbflocking and I just love her to bits. Her outfit was done by my friend Rachel Fisher of myownlittleworld bjd.
So I hope you're all in the Holiday Spirit and will visit the AWCB to see the gorgeous inspiration by my Stella DT sisters and will come play along. The challenge runs through Saturday December 15th, with a mid inspiration post on December 3rd, so there's plenty of time to join in.
Here's how to keep up with what's happening at Aurora Wings.
