Hi Folks, I have a project to show you today showcasing the new Gothic Angels stamp sheet from Chocolate Baroque. This stamp sheet is a fabulous mix of gothic images and background pieces, perfect for making your Christmas cards with a traditional feel.
I have chosen to create a card using a leafy background technique taught to me by my crafty friend Elaine a couple of years ago. I stamped the angel onto a piece of white card, and then stamped the holly stamp around her, creating a frame. I coloured the images with Polychromos pencils, and cut around the leaves, leaving a small border for definition. I added some purple ribbon to correspond with the colours in the image itself, and added a greeting from the stamp sheet.
This card would be ideal for someone who does not necessarily celebrate a traditional Christmas. I like to call this angel 'Feisty Angel' as she looks very strong and knows her own mind. However, in more delicate colours, she would look completely different.
I will be back in a couple of days, with some more samples to show you, thanks for stopping by, xx
