Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #28 ~ Mother!

We have a lovely challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
and I've created a special card featuring a little angel.

The theme this challenge is all about mother's, now my mumchi isn't with us on earth but a new angel and that is where my thinking went with this card...
I brought out my lovely Paperangel set, I've stamped the head and arms first, then I masked them before stamping the dress and heat embossing with white. The previous ink must have been still wet as the powder ended up all over her head and arms. The embossed edges made watercolouring her much easier and made the whole look very soft and angelic.

The wings I have stamped and heat embossed onto vellum, then fussy cut out and adhered them behind her. I am so pleased with the background texture, I decided to try Heavy gel medium through my knit stencil and sprinkled on dry glitter after I've lifted the stencil off. The gel medium is stiff and still gives great depth and as it's a medium things like glitter stick to it really well.
I chose to stamp the sentiment onto vellum as well using metallic platinum powder

I spent an amazing weekend in Ireland visiting my amazing nan who's ninetieth birthday we were celebrating...
But I've come back with an awful cold/sore throat so March's Mixed Media Work will be a bit later than I hoped.

I'm also entering this card to a few other challenges...
