"Aark! The Herald Angels Sing...."
This week's challenge at the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog is "Xmas in July" [SDC #157] - seems to be a popular theme at the moment - is that a hint that half the year is over and xmas is coming???????
I've used a somewhat scary angel from Stampotique "Daniel's Tree Topper" and as you will notice I change "Hark" to "Aark!!" - you know like crows go "aark aark" - my humour - supposed to be funny - you may or may not "get" it LOL!!!
Background for both pages is acrylic paint - I used a little sponge roller to apply the paint - both red & then blotches of yellow - love to get painty & inky fingers!
I used some texture paste & a stencil down one side of my first page and then covered with gold UTEE with a bit of glitter added. I used a Tim Holtz textures stamp to make the "lines" at the top and the bottom of each page and some of the lines I embossed with gold embossing powder. The first page has 3 angels printed, coloured & fussy cut then adhered to the page - I also added some glitter to the wings & dress.
On the second page I used letter stamps to spell "December" down the side of the page, more of the texture stamp & embossing and angels printed directly to the page in black.
To finish off I added some little gold star gems for even more glitz! I have to say that I really love this 2 page spread!
Now I am also entering these pages in the current "Sparkle N Sprinkle" Creative Challenge which is always anything goes using, glitter, embossing powder and/or flocking - I've certainly used lots of embossing powder and even put some polysparkle glitter in with the gold UTEE!!
