SCACD Palooza Blog Hop!

Good morning friends!  It's a wonderful day for a Blog Hop...  I'm so glad that you are here : )  If you've come from Marti's blog and her fabulous work, you are right on track, if you'd like to start at the beginning, it's Here.

I ADORE this new image by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD from the mini Sampler Edition #1 set.  I love angels and everything they symbolize, so I'm very excited to be able to showcase her for ya!  I'd like to introduce Angel of Hope...

Isn't she beautiful?  I chose to create a holiday/winter theme with her, but she could be used ANY time of year for ANY occasion!  I am going to use her again to create a card of encouragement for a friend who is going through a difficult time.

I've colored her beautiful, flowing hair with copics E35 E34 YR21 YR20.  Her wings are colored with YR21 and a touch of E34, then generously coated with Viva Decor Glitter Liner.  When that dried, I GENTLY dabbed more color on top.  Oh so sparkly!!!


I think that I've created my own style with this card - it's called elegant grunge LOL!  The 'put your sunglasses on,' bright sparkles around the edges of the card is Gold 3D Glitter-Gel.  The blue roses were not the shade I wanted, so I added some white gel pen to tone them down and then some Gold 3D Glitter-Gel to tie it all together!

So did ya notice that I don't have one speck of dp in this card?  Unusual for me, but it was a good challenge!  For texture on the white cs, I used my 5 x 7 embossing folder.  I love that size!  Now I wish that all my EFs were bigger...

The big, beautiful, ribbon and bow share the spotlight with Angel of Hope.  Isn't it pretty?  Gold half pearls set in the corners finish off this elegant grunge creation.
