February Christmas Blog Hop

It's time for the monthly Magnolia Christmas Blog Hop. Hope you are enjoying this as much as we are making these cards with the oh so cute Magnolia stamps. If you are coming here from Norma's blog
    then you are on the right track, if you aren't and want to start at the beginning go here. I used Christmas Angel #3010 from Magnolia-licious. For some reason I used pink again this month. I usually like the traditional red and green. 

 

I tried using Suzanne Dean's method of using copics like distress ink. I don't think I succeeded very well but I like her just the same. The stars all have gold stickles and the head band and dots have crystal stickles as do the little dots on the dp which is from basic grey.  The wings were colored with copics and then have angel wings shimmerz applied. The gold background was made using  Pendants Fleur De Lis by Spellbinders and then cut in half.  The sewing around the image is done with pink rayon thread. I am an accomplished seamstress but all I use my machine for any more is to sew on paper LOL. At her feet is crystal stickles with polar white flower soft. The little star brads in the corners are from making memories. She is popped up with foam tape. Tied a ribbon around the background and she is done.
Copics used
E00, E02, E11, E31, E57, R00 R20, R85, RV23, Y00, Y06, Y17, Y38, YR20, BG10, BG34, Goo, W1, W3, W5, W7
Your next stop on the tour is Ruby's.
