Simon Says Stamp & Show... Some Stars

Good Morning!!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend and ready for this week's theme...
 at
is
Some Stars...


For this weeks challenge I wanted to try something a little 'different'... Inspired by The Kelly Rae Roberts Angels I went to work collaging my own...


Firstly I doodled a little angel sketch, drew and cut out each piece on scrap paper to use as templates. I changed her hair slightly and made her dress a little longer from the original sketch.


 The dress was made from natural sticky back canvas, then stamped with Wendy Vecchi and Tim Holtz stamps you might just see a few stars. The colour is a blend of Crushed Olive and Broken china DI. Her skin also from natural sticky back canvas, was tinted with distress stains.


 Her wings are cut using heart wings die and embellished with mica flakes. Her hair was cut from old book pages, you know it's an old book when the words feel like the were made on a letter press and coloured with Walnut stain and vintage photo DI. She holds a chipboard star and on her wrist is a Star adornment on a charm clip. I have sprayed her with heirloom gold glimmer spray so she really sparkles!!!


So, until I can get hold of Tim Holtz new easel die, I've resorted to adhering a configurations box to the chipboard back, as a stand... I will of course paint it black before I give it to the resipient LOL!

Hope it inspires and why not pop round the rest of the team to see some more stars!!!

Wow, she is very beautiful. I love the swing of her dress, the charm dangling from her wrist, her beautiful wings and I also like the little box in the back. I know you rather have an easel but the little box it great for a pair of earrings or something. Great job!...as always. :)Connie

I LOVE this Kim! Such a simple, yet striking piece! (although it probably wasn't simple to make, was it? lol) Really wonderful, love it!

This is an incredibly lovely piece of art, Kim. I know I don't always get by here to comment, but I think your work is always so fresh and original and this is a perfect example. Totally out of the box, something I couldn't have dreamed up on my best day let alone execute! Not only it is it beautifully drawn, but all the composite pieces are so interesting. You totally ROCKED this week's challenge!
