Well, I combined two challenges with one card again! I used the WOJ sketch by Heather and paired it up with this week's challenge to use fairies or Angles for the CCT challenge!
This card has put me through the ringer this week!!!! I really struggled with getting all the layers just so. I stuck paper down only to rip it back up again. I did that more times than I care to count and came very close to just "throwing in the towel" he, he, he...get it! Instead I decided to walk away and come back to it a little later with a fresh perspective! That seemed to do the trick. So, in the end I think it didn't turn out too badly!
I made this card 6X6 using Coredinations cardstock and BG Urban Prairie patterned paper. I stamped Melinda the Helping Angel with Memento Tuxedo black ink on Georgia Pacific paper and coloured her in with my Copic markers and add lots of Diamond and Crystal Stickles here and there. I inked all the the edges of the pp and used Metallic rub-ons to add a little extra sparkle to the distressing. Then I ruffed up the edges of some the Coredinations cardstock with my Tim Hotlz Tonic paper distressing tool thingy.
I really like that little shot of black that the snaps added to the card. The snaps were a breeze to set with my Cropidle and I really like how they look. I think I will have to pick up some more in various colours for future use!
Well, I have a confession! I'm no domestic goddess! No, far from it, in fact! Frankly, I think domesticity is over-rated!! Now does that mean I don't clean my house!? No, of course I begrudgingly clean it but maybe not as often, as, I should, *smirk*! That is cuz I would much rather make a card, lol!!! Well, I thought my new Vintage Women, Mellisa Frances transfers would make for a great sentiment for this card!
So, who wouldn't like to have Melinda the Helping angle magically appear and do the dishes or fold the laundry!? I know I would! Now, I just wonder if she can clean up my scrapbooking room for me too? It is totally wrote-off after making this card, lol!!
