Winged Things - Crafty Cardmakers DT

It's our 100th Birthday over at Crafty Cardmakers and our chosen theme this week is  'Winged Things'
Our sponsors this time are CRAFTS AND ME  and WOODWARE.

For my card I used the gorgeous Celtic Angel stamp which is available here.
I am getting better at one layer cards, although they still make me nervous as I normally end up making a mistake at the very end of the project and the little creation ends up in the bin! 

Thankfully I managed this without any mishaps although I held my breath a little when I stamped the sentiment! 

I used bright white card, printed out the angel and coloured her with promarkers. Liberal helpings of glamour dust applied to her wings and then just stamped the sentiment using Versafine ink.

I dusted round the edge of the card very lightly with Wild Honey distress ink.

The little orange heart shaped gem was found hiding in my stash!

Hope you like her and hope she's inspired you to come across and join us this week and please just check out the rules before adding your creation!
