Angel Card

This 1998 DeNami angel is one I bought when I began stamping. I still love her & usually just heat emboss on colored paper to avoid having to color.  Now that I have Bristol paper & Zig wc markers I wanted to try coloring.  Actually came out OK & I'll keep practicing.  After it dried I brushed the gown & wings with Spectrum Noir clear sparkle.  The die cut is Spellbinders Decorative Labels One & the sentiment is from Hero Arts Happy Holly Days.  
Love Stampendous Moonstone embossing powder.  Memento Gray Flannel was a close match to the Zig I used for the trumpet so I used it for the sentiment. The mat looks black, but it's actually a dark gray.  Last minute entry for the challenge at Always Use Rubber & I'll also enter ATSM, Allsorts, Christmas Card Challenges, DRU, Paru's Card Making Challenges, SSS WednesdayDie Cut Divas & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
