Polka Dot Stars

The new optional twist for our Anything Goes challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday is Polka Dot Christmas.   

My image this week is Softly from our wonderful sponsor A Day for Daisies.  Be sure to check out all their adorable images.  Looks like they have some new holiday images in the shop!

This was such a lovely image and it feels like the angel is ready to deliver the new baby to the manger.  

My goal was to make her appear sort of as a cameo coming out of the frame.  So once I lightly Copic colored the image and outlined the wings with a gel pen, I adhered the bottom to the frame.  The frame was cut in Design Space and heat embossed using Ranger Enchanted Gold powder.  I glued the frame down flat as well as the bottom of her gown.  I placed a piece of 3-D foam under the bottom of the circle.  This popped the top part up off of the card.

As for the paper under the angel, it started out blue.  I rubbed in purple and dark blue inks.  I finished with black around the edges.  I left it to dry and then heat embossed the sentiment.  Finally, time for the polka dots....stars!  I went with my Signo Uni-Ball Broad pt.
