Once Upon an Alota Stamp

I received some new stamps I had ordered from Alota Rubber Stamps and I had so much fun. I decided to use this one first...Fall Angel. I know its not fall so I had to change it up a bit and turn it into a Spring Angel. I used paper I received as a gift and unfortunately , there is no label.
I used the following Prismacolored Markers in the image
  • dress panels alternated with peach and blush pink. The center bodice is done in the peach and the sleeves are blush pink
  • wings are done with cream at the bottom and goldenrod on the tips. I used some bronze at the base of the wings
  • the buds of the flowers are deco yellow and yellow ochre, the leaves are chartreuse.
  • hair was done with sienna brown and light tan.

I used versamark and gold detail embossing powder on the image . I used French Grey all around the image and cut it out with scissor and knife. I used dimensionals to raise the image on the circles. I created the circle medallion using the largest round nestibility in olive green and the scalloped circle in a scrap out of the Poesy of Florals from DCWV. I added another olive green scalloped circle beside the DP. The sentiment Once Upon a Time is from Hampton Art and leaves the card open for birthdays, anniversaries or even get well cards. I used the 1/4 inch punch from SU to trim the card with sections of the DP I used.

I`m having a great day playing so maybe there will be another post later on today.
Hugs
