Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. With this crazy virus threat and quarantine we all need to show more love and appreciation. When creating this card, I was thinking of my 9 years old daughter, who is separated from her friends now, studying every day (homeschooling is not easy for the kids either) while she sees her smaller brother playing all day. I wanted to cheer her up and tell her how much I love her. So I chose the My angel stamp set with a couple of stand alone dies and a stencil which combined together make the perfect heavenly scene. Let’s get to the details!
First I stamped the angels and the musical instruments with black ink which is alcohol marker friendly. Then I used my Copics to add colour. The wings I kept light purple, the dresses white with some grey shadows. I wanted their hair to look a bit golden so I chose light brown markers. I love how the turned out! I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Almost all angels have a cut-line around their hands, so it is so easy to tuck the instruments in there!
For the background I sponged Squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I placed the Rays the roof stencil over it and added Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink. Before removing the stencil I sprayed it with a shimmer spritz for a subtle sparkle.
Then I created the clouds: I die cut 2 of the Silver lining cloud border dies from white cardstock and also from gold sparkle cardstock. I layered them on top of each other tiny offset so the clouds look like they are lit by the sun. On the smaller cloud border I stamped a sentiment from the My angel set.
And then the idea stroke my mind: why not to add the golden halo to the angels too? So I used the coordinating dies and cut the golden angels, layered them under the coloured ones a bit offset. They look gorgeous, don’t you think?
As a finishing touch I stamped a couple of music notes all around. I also used glossy accents on the musical instruments.
