Sitting Angel Child

Challenge 117

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

Still trying to work on a couple of art journals for my kids, so far they have been occasionally picked up and added to over the past 3 years lol.  I am not in any hurry to finish them which is just as well.  Anyway for this Blue challenge I decided to use Ike's fab image Sitting Angel Child and create a soft blue background for her.  Since Mum died in August I keep finding white feathers everywhere, out on walks, in the garden, one in the house etc. as Mum always used to say a white feather was a sign an angel is near :)  So that pretty much explains this journal page.  I used Distress Oxides for the background which once the base layer was on over stamped with flourishes and bubbles.  The angel was also coloured with Distress Oxides and the skin coloured with Polychromes and so she had something to sit on I used white embossing powder to create a dense cloud effect then added gold and bronze mica flakes.  Using some white feathers, a lovely we wooden heart to which I added a blue heart gem blue flat backed pearls completed the right hand side of the page.  To finish off I printed my text bits and stuck them on.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:-


  1. This is so lovely . What a beautiful card . I have a friend who lost her son in a car accident when he was a teenager . She finds feathers everywhere ! Places you would not expect to find feathers . She always says that it's her son sending her a little gift .



  2. Absolutely AWESOME ! Your colouring on the image blows me away. These pages are wonderful. Great background and such a cool use for the feathers ! I think Mum is sending you love xx
