Angel Wings

Morning, Just a little reminder, Leonie is launching her Brand New Collection tonight on Hochanda at 8 pm, dont forget to tune in, it's sure to be filled with crafty goodness. Today I decided to share this card with you, I wanted to make a background that really contrasted with the beautifully drawn Angel fro Leonie's last collection. This one is a little grungy, like the Angel was appearing through a magical tunnel. I like that Leonies stamps enable you to get so many different looks despite her style being so unique.

To begin with I stamped the Angel in the centre of a 7'' square card, I then masked her off with one I had cut from copier paper to allow me to position the wings.

Then I masked her off with Pebeo Drawing gum and allowed it to dry.

Next I created my background tunnel for her. I sprinkled some Cobalt Blue Brusho's into the centre of the card, then dipped my finger into some gel medium and swirled in a circular motion to spread the colour pattern. I did the same again, further out with Orange Brusho's and repeated this until the card was covered. Then I removed the gum and coloured using my alcohol markers.

Next I backed this with blue mirri card and stamped the 'Love' in the right hand corner.

I then created another tunnel layer using the same technique as before but this time I used Grey Brusho's towards the centre then Cobalt Blue, alternating between the 2 until the card was covered. To  further tie this to my card, I used the background stamp in my hand, randomly stamping with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.

To finish the card, I layered the background on to the same Mirri card and secured the front to this using foam tape to raise it from the base.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed your visit and that you will stop by again soon. Tonight I will be sharing some of the samples I made for Leonie's New Collection, Hope you will check back later. Take care and Happy Crafting.


  1. Really shows that Leonie's stamps can be used in so many different ways and with different techniques. Does look like she is coming through some kind of time tunnel.
