Christmas Angel with Harp*

Good morning everyone!  Happy Labor Day :)  I hope everyone has had a nice long weekend! I have been crafting. Kevin and I went for a little ride on the bikes yesterday morning, but other than that we have just been hanging out. I think my Father-in-Law is a bit nervous about his trip back home, so we have been taking it easy. It is a LONG day ahead for him in the air. It is a long trip from Georgia to Australia! He leaves this evening, so I'll be crafting until we head to the airport.

Here is my Christmas card for today:

I've used Harp Angel from Di's Digi Designs. I colored her with Copic Markers and did a small bit of layering. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the colored harp. I also added gold Wink of Stella to the star and her halo. All of the papers, except for the card base, are scraps and I cut all the card pieces with my Silhouette Cameo. I embossed the white in the background with some clouds. I added a bit of yellow ribbon and the gems around the card. I also added a bit of yellow stitching on the top. The Joy To The World is stamped. I decorated the inside so that it was easier to write on the easel card.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13; R20
  • Hair: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR23
  • Harp: Y11, Y15, YR24
  • Wing: E40, E41
  • Blue on Dress: B0000, B00, B01, 0
