Angels Amongst Us by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a card featuring my Angel from one of my new That’s Crafty! Christmas themed clear stamp sets.

What I did:

I used a sheet of watercolour paper and swooshed it through blue and purple diluted Oxides on my craft mat, then dried it thoroughly.

I then added some stencilling using a green and blue Oxide through a Dinky stencil and one of the new bigger stencils in the shape of a Poinsettia Christmas tree; I wanted to keep the background subtle.

Next step was to stamp the Angel on a sheet of Strathmore mixed media paper and colour her in. I used my Zig pens for this but it really doesn’t matter what you choose as the paper will take anything you throw at it! 

I stamped the halo separately and coloured that in too. In this set I’ve included a crown too so you can make her an Angel OR a Queen, whatever takes your fancy at the time of creating.

I adhered her to the card with her halo. I added a piece of Dresden trim and a Tim Holtz sentiment for a finishing touch. Then mounted onto white cardstock.

I really hope you all like my Angel and the rest of the stamps too….it’s never too early to start making those Christmas cards especially as this year just seems to be flying by!!

Supplies Used:

Distress Markers (use instead of the Zig pens)
Dresden Trim

Hope you like it
