CDD October Sneak - Angel Kisses

Today is your first full view of Angel Kisses, one of the new sets available for purchase this Friday, October 13, at the Craftin Desert Divas online shop!

Now I'm not normally an angel girl but these had me at "hark!"  They're so adorable, aren't they! And just wait until you see the other angels in the set. Cuteness overload for sure.

Steps I took (note not necessarily the most logical order because that's how I roll!):
  1. Mask & stamp the angels then color them using Copics.
  2. Add flooring to ground them. I just eyeballed the perspective of the planks and flicked away.
  3. Mask the spotlight then sponged yellow, concentrating overhead, on their hair, the side of the wings and the floor around them. This really pulled the whole card together.
  4. Diecut the focal panel using the Fancy Frame Dies.
  5. Added some Wink of Stella to the wings and halos.  NOTE: I waited to do this after coloring so I wouldn't muck up my Copic with glitter.
  6. Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black. NOTE: I do this last, after sponging, after diecutting, etc, so that my sentiment remains crisp and ink doesn't transfer to my cutting plates (ask me how I know).
  7. Impressed the base of the card with the largest of the Fancy Frame Dies and adhered the card front.

So sparkly and flippity cute!  I know exactly who is getting this card for the holidays. One down, many to go!  LOL.
