Angel Watching Over Us

I bought the Whimsy Stamp Lullaby and thought this picture of this cute little angel watching over this bird and keeping it safe and warm from the cold winter weather would be good for a friend who is in the hospital for a life-threatening condition. 

I colored the image with colored pencils using a eraser to blend rather than Copic markers this time for a pure pastel.  I applied Ranger Lace glitter glue to the snow and the angel's wing.  It is hard to see that I applied a clear glitter embossing powder to a Sue Wilson Maidenhair fern cut with vellum to give the fern the icy appearance.  This fern is behind the bow.  I used just some white ribbon rose flowers this time for a softer look. 

Supplies used:
Ribbon:  Really Reasonable   White Sheer Organza with Satin Center

Dies are from Scrapy Land that sells 40 name brands of dies and supplies.

Creative Expression - Sue Wilson Designs - Snowflake Corner, Tag, Dandelion  and Maidenhair fern

Snow:  Stampendous Deep Impression embossing enamel
Impression Obsession:  Sprig set
