My Blue Christmas Angel from Retro Cafe Art

It's been a while....went for a little trip up North for a Dinner Theatre Show, did some Shopping, celebrated our Anniversary...took a break from a lot of things.
 
And Monday, I get to order my new glasses!!! I had to wait 5 weeks wait after surgery to make sure they're done healing and changing...and I AM READY!
 
So.......I finally got to play with the gorgeous Articulate Angels from Retro Cafe Art and this lovely little lady is what I ended up with.
 
 
A short synopsis of the process is this....
 
I base coated white and added Grunge Paste to the Small Tree of Life stencil onto the Articulate Angel Ornament #1.
 

 
The lighting here is different from the final piece but you can see the stencil here better.
 
I added paint with a piece of foam to  the edges, sanded it down and then laid the stencil back over the piece and stamped with Orange Archival Ink and the Mini Snowflakes stamp.
 
Then I added Platinum Stickles in a pleasing pattern.
 
 
The Angel's face is a Fairy Art Doll Cut Out. I used Gold paint on the Star, her Gloves, and the 2 pieces on the bottom. (you either get a good picture of the glitter or the gold paint, not both, sorry)
 
Last I added the Silver Glitter Tulle as a skirt, a piece of gold Tinsel Twine on her head, and some gold Ric-Rac to hang it with.
 
So check out the links to Retro Cafe Art Gallery and make some gorgeous Angels of your own! They make wonderful gifts and can also be given as gifts to Art Friends to make for themselves!
