For a Special Sister

Evening everyone, happy crafting days and nights I hope for all! 

Well been busy and making tonight, being back at work has drained me the last couple of days, have been fortunate enough to work from home today, so after working I made the most of being able to catch up on housework with no children!  Got one awake at the moment! GRRR!!!

Well my boss asked me to make a card for her sister, nothing like a bit of notice! She needs it for Tuesday, so thinking ahead I thought I would get it done tonight, so at least if i didn't finish it tonight I would get it finished over the weekend.  

All my boss said was her sister liked crystals and angels, well I spent ages looking for the right image, then I came across this beauty at digital pencil too, she is called sending peace, click here to go to Mo's store

When I printed the image I printed her bigger than I needed her, but I decided that I would find a way around it. So I made an easel card!  Once I had coloured her with pro-markers I went around the edge of the entire image with the vanilla pen to give the effect of light.

  I mounted her onto a piece of dusky pink bazzill stock and then used my Tim Holtz brushed corduroy ink pad along with my SU dabbers to get the effect around her, I also went over the bazzill stock as I felt it showed the detail on the paper a bit more.  I then mounted her onto plain black card.  I went over the lines on her wings with my art glitter glue and then sprinkled glitter onto her.  The doves have just had a little bit of grey on to add a bit of detail to them.

From a bit of the Bazzill card I had a made the small rose (OK so I love making them at the moment!) and then used a bit more of the ink around the petals.  You can just see on the edge how the Bazzill stock has small raised bubbles on, 

The sentiment is something I just thought of and wrote on my word program on my computer, I then cut it out with my nestabilities as well as a larger oval for the backing, I then went round with rhinestones just to add a bit more detail.  I just used some purple ribbon I had in my stash! 

This is my 1st every easel card I have made (thanks for the inspiration Lou)!
