I can do cute too! Earth Angel!

My cards and projects can be dictated by my moods. Sometimes I feel dark and edgy. Sometimes I feel flirty. Sometimes I feel punny. Sometimes I feel whimsical. And every now and then I feel cute. This is one of those days.

I was inspired by the stamp, some older papers by Fancy Pants, and by a sketch I found online.

Sunday Sketch & Stamp's Sketch #111

My take on the sketch:

The super-cute Earth Angel is by Elizabeth Bell for SCACD. Since I'm an aging hippie, her outfit and that little peace sign on her wing totally spoke to me. I also figured that she was versatile and could just as easily be blowing on a flower or a heart or a bird or a butterfly or for a Season's Greetings card. So I bought her.

She was colored with Copic markers, which I know is a total shock. Her wings were touched up with some Spica Clear glitter pen. I took my color palette from the very old Sweet Pea patterned papers by Fancy Pants, which I found in my scrap bin! I also have some untouched 12x12 pieces from that collection (and many others). I'm trying to use my stash when I can. All edges were sponged with Pearl Paint Dabber. The die cut scalloped circle was sprayed with Perfect Pearls Pearl mist.

The sentiment was computer generated and says "Imagine: Peace & Love". Remember what I said about my youth?

The flowers were diecut from patterned paper, except for the innards of the large flower which were punched with a pistil/stamen/flower-centery punch from Punch Bunch and the daisy from EK Success.

The pearls are from Recollections.

Thanks for visiting today.
