Santos Angel - A Card by Deborah



Distress Ink: Forest Moss, Festive Berries
Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink: Red Geranium
Adirondack Dye Ink: Butterscotch, Lettuce
Ink duster or Cut n Dry Foam or Speedball Brayer
Glue Stick
Die Cut Lace Border

If you follow my blog you’ll know I’m trying to cut my craft buying – and my credit card bill! But I could not resist the new Santos Angel set. I love the santos doll so much I stamped her twice :-)

I stamped her and her crown on a scrap of white card, first in Red Geranium, then in Forest Moss. I stamped the wings, swirls and lettering only in Forest Moss. Then I set about grunging her up using the scratches stamp from Bitty Grunge in Butterscotch. I also used the Butterscotch with an ink duster (alternatively use a brayer or Cut n Dry Foam) to colour the card very lightly. I scraped both the Butterscotch and Forest Moss pads directly round the edges of the topper.

I used the same techniques for the background, stamping the Latin phrase in Forest Moss.

Finally I added two strips of ‘lace’ (A Tim Holtz/Sizzix die) from my stash, (painted with Interference Red acrylic paint and a little gilding wax), that happened to match.
