Crissy Armstrong - Design Team Call









The biggest delimema I had with this design team call out from Crissy Armstrong's "Sundays with Crissy" was trying to decide which adorable image I wanted to work with. LOL - not a bad thing to have to worry about. Anyone who knows me knows that I love and collect angels, so once I found this cutie, I knew I had to use her.

I colored her with my Copics, added a few little highlights with a white gel pen, some glitter on the wings and bubble, then just a dab of vintage destressed ink stippled on to help tone it down a bit to fit the ambiance of the card better.

The papers are from DCWV, the sentiment is computer generated. The edges of most of the paper is distressed and then inked, some of them got some hand stitching as well.

The clouds are just handrawn with a little gloss and glitter added...then a touch of ink again.

I loved working with this image and have already started another card using another one of Crissy's angels...

I would love to enter this card in the design team call as well as the distressing challenge at Sundays with Crissy and the Sweet Stop sketch challenge SSS116.

Have a great day!
