Angelic, like me!

This week's challenge at Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenges is Angels because today is Be An Angel Day! Personally, I think it should Be an Angel like Kathi Day because we know that I'm the angelic sort. *giggle*

Here's some info for you!
"Be an Angel Day encourages us to do acts of kindness, and to help others. This special day has strong religious roots. Jayne Howard Feldman, the creator of this day, says she was inspired by angels to create this day on August 22.
The objective of this day is to be like an angel, and do something good or kind for someone who is in need of help. The type of angelic help you can offer is not defined or limited. It can be physical, emotional, or spiritual.
Be an Angel Day is for both the giver and the receiver. If you are the receiver, make certain to express your appreciation."
 Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenges which is now a coloring challenge! You can use alcohol markers, other markers, colored pencils, and any other coloring medium. The only requirement is that you color an open line image!

August's sponsor for the Outlawz Friday's Coloring Challenges is Bombshell Stamps. The winner of this month's challenge will win his or her choice of a digital set of stamps.

You should definitely enter this challenge and should also visit my Outlawz Coloring Challenge Teamies' blogs for inspiration! Carla, Dawn, and Penny are seriously talented!

My card features SCACD's Hannah, one of the lovely stamps from the Mythical Reflections Collection.

Hannah was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. A touch of Gold Spica Glitter pen by Copic was added to her headpiece and wings.

The patterned papers are from the Botanical Tea 6x6 and 8x8 pads by Graphic 45. The image panel, patterned brown cardstock, and gold metallic cardstock were die-cut with Nestabilities dies by Spellbinders. One of the two dies included in SCACD's Classic Corner Die set was used to die-cut gold metallic cardstock. These were placed on the upper corners of the image panel.

A Die-Namics die from one of their Blueprints sets was used to cut the scalloped border. One of the two dies included in SCACD's Classic Corner Die set was used to die-cut gold metallic cardstock. The Delicate Chain die by Poppystamps/Memory Box was used to die-cut gold metallic cardstock and the chain was added to the scalloped border.

Thanks for visiting today!
