Creating an Angelic Sky

by Michelle Short November 27, 2020 3 Comments

Hello there, Michelle here and today I have a card to share with you using the Trumpeting Angel Fancy Die. This is such a pretty die that you can use in many different ways. For today's card, I simply wanted to cut in from white and create a bold background.

I started off my card by creating the background so that I had time to leave it to dry. I took a panel of watercolor paper and sprayed it with water using the Water Mist Bottle. I then added drops of Indigo, Deep Ocean and Teal Liquid Watercolors. Because the panel was already wet, the waterolor spread straight away. I then added drops of Rose Gold Glimmer Metallic Ink on top and sprayed it a little more with water to get them to move. I wanted to create a more cloud-like/galaxy type background, so I tried to not let the watercolors blend too much. I then let it sit to dry.

Once dry, the panel was cut down using a Nesting Rectangle Infinity Die and adhered to the front of a top folding card base using foam tape. I took the Trumpeting Angel Fancy Die and cut it three times from Dove White Cardstock. They were layered up one on top of another using Precision Glue and added to the card.

I took the sentiment from the Stocking Bouquet set and stamped it on to Pitch Black Cardstock using Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape. 

I really like that the background has an alcohol ink type look to it but with a lot less mess! Thank you so much for joining me today. Take care and happy crafting!
