Christmas Angel

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today with some Christmas inspiration - yes, it is just around the corner now!!
For today's card, I have used an adorable image by Make it Crafty called Angel and Cherub (it comes as 2 images that you can use separately). I resized and cropped my image in MS Word, printed it and coloured it on my piece of paper without cutting it.
I wanted to make my image pop so I decided to create a flashy pink background and used blue on my image. 

I started with the background, coloured making quick circles in RV25 - we are not aiming at having a smooth blended background here - a technique I learned from Zoe at Make it Crafty. 

I then coloured the skin of my angel, using E000, 00, 11 and 71 for the shadows. I also added a bit of R20 for the cheeks and used B63, BG01, 000 for the eyes. 

For the clothes, I used B02, 04, 16, 37, 39.

I then coloured the hair in E59, 25, YR23 (in that order) and coloured the halo in Y11, 26, E57, and the wings in B63, BG000 and a touch of V000. 

To add even more depth to my image, I used my Polychromo pencils on the hair, bow and clothes. I then cut my image and went around the edges with a blending tool and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.  

I thought I would add some details to the background, so I stamped a few leaves and the word JOY with a Marianne's Designs alphabet set in black ink. To brighten things a bit, I did some doodling with a white gel pen. And voilĂ !
