A Christmas Angel!

Hello Friends.
It's Monday night here in the Tropics!  It's a Hot Summer, and we need some rain around here.  But before going to bed and turning on the air conditioner, let me share with you this card I made to contribute to three different challenges.

I got inspired on Unity Be Inspired "color inspiration 30".  You can check it out HERE.

Then I followed the "Holiday" topic from Addicted to Stamps and More HERE.

Finally, I am entering this in the "Things with Wings" challenge from Incy Wincy Designs, HERE.

So I ended up with a beautiful Christmas Angel with non traditional colors.

I colored this beauty with pigment inks, copics and watercolor pencils.  For the pigment inks, I literally inked an acrylic block and applied to the surface with a water brush.  Love the effect.  Some of the inks have sparkle.  This angel looks fabulous "in person".




Forgive me for the shadows in the photos... I'm not using daylight (it's late), and I did not want to use any flash so you can really see the real colors, with their glimmer and shades.


Hope you liked it.

Would love to get a comment if you did.  And, remember you can follow me on facebook HERE. Just for fun.  Have a good night!

I will also Share this in next Friday Friends with Flair.
