having fun! with an angel!



This is a Phyllis Harris designed stamp by Unity Stamps. I used Copics to color the
image. I tried a technique of coloring the background by Jennifer McGuire (I couldn't find the video that demonstrated this technique but she does mention it here). I  went over the image with an embossing pen and then covered that with clear embossing powder and heated it.  I then was able to go in with Distress Ink to color the background. I wish that would have remembered to wipe my card stock with an anti-static because some of the embossing powder stuck to the card in front of her face
resisting the Distress Ink.  I will keep trying!!!!!

THIS CARD WAS A WINNER AT UNITY STAMP CO!!!!
