Today's card is from the Holy Triptych set that was retired in June. I was so sad to see it taken from the catalog and I'm just not ready to let it go or pack it away.
When I saw the technique challenge on SCS yesterday, I imediately thought of this set. You can link to SCS and then to the tutorial here.
My background doesn't look right to me. I put the ink on the clear block, but it didn't take the ink well. I liked it anyway so decided to go with it.
After coloring the angel with Watercolor Pencils, I daubed some Frost White Shimmer paint on the cleaned block and spritzed with water. I dipped my Aquapainter in that mix and painted the angel, blending the coloring as I went. I has a nice shimmer, but it didn't show up in the photo. Maybe if you click on the photo it will enlarge it enough to see the shimmer.
I had been saving this ribbon for years. My Upline wrapped some Christmas presents from my Hubby one year. She told me to save it because it was Stampin' Up! I would have saved it anyway because it is beautiful and makes such a pretty bow!
Stamps: Holy Triptych

If I can get my table cleaned up from the class today, I'll try to do something besides a Christmas card. The colors for todays Color Challenge are intriguing. My table is pretty full though!
Hope today was a good one for you and that you have been able to enjoy your blessings.
