Here's my card with Stampotique's Verdette (Janet Klein) and Angel Wings - 2 sided (Arwen McCullen).
Angel Wings - 2 sided was stamped with onto Neenah cardstock, colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, edged with black markers, then brushed with Irridescent Medium (Winsor & Newton). The wings were set aside for a bit.
Verdette was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts) onto Neenah cardstock and a sheet of old patterned paper from a 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. Both images were colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edged with black marker. The Neenah colored Verdette had an accident (intentional) when her arms and hands were removed and parts of her dress were cut away. The patterned paper Verdette's became a dress donor when her dress was cut away from the rest of her. All of this was a bit traumatic for Verdette. She felt much better when she was furnished with new stylish print dress and even happier when her arms were reattached! Since she was so calm throughout this entire process, Verdette was rewarded with Angel Wings - 2 sided. Alas, Verdette had to wait to test out her new Angel Wings.
I wanted to create a shimmery sky so I experimented a bit with my favorite sky colors from the Media Fluid Acrylic (MFA) paint range (DecoArt). Cerulean Blue MFA paint was dripped onto a plastic lid, lightened with a few drops of Translucent White MFA, then thinned with about a quarter of a pipette of Irridescent Medium (Winsor and Newton). This wash was then sponged across a sheet of 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock (Strathmore).
I love a touch of pink in a sky, so Primary Magenta MFA paint was lightened with Translucent White MFA paint, thinned with about a quarter of a pipette of Irridescent Medium, then sponged over the shimmery blue. This process was repeated with straight-up Translucent White MFA paint. I continued to add layers of Irridescent Medium-thinned paint until I was happy with the result.
Metallic Gold MFA paint was mixed with Interference Gold MFA paint, thinned a tad with Irridescent Medium, then sponged over a Starburst stencil.
Very old, somewhat dried up, alphabet rub-ons by Making Memories were used to add the sentiment.
My sky was complete so it was time for Verdette with her Angel Wings to echo the sentiment and fly. So she did.
Thanks for visiting today!
