Glad Tidings

Glad Tidings...that is what I have chosen to call my new card. I decided on this name because of the beautiful angel that is the centerpiece for my card. The angel is called Gabrielle and she can be found at Guylou's Inimitability. If you'd like to check out some of her images you can find her here. If you are interested in checking out any of the other designers that I have on here you can find them all here . Hope you go have a is well worth the time. Anyways, so I started out with Gabrielle from Guylou. As soon as I saw Gabrielle I knew that I wanted to do a card on when the angel showed up to the sheppards on the night that Jesus was born.

I used SU Night of Navy cs as my base. The inside cs is blue and gold shimmer paper that I bought at Bartell's Scrapbooking.  Gabrielle is printed on white cs bought at Michaels. She is colored using SU water color pencils. The bottom of her dress was done with a gold metalic marker that I got at Michaels. I used a  gold Gelly Roll pen, also bought at Michaels, to give some gold accents in her hair and a gold accent at her waist. I used the metalic gold to outline the star and my SU pastels for adding color to Gabrielle's face and hands. The SU pastels were also used to give the gold "halo" around Gabrielle and fill in the night sky. The silouette images of the sheppards and their sheep were gotten at an LDS clip art site. I used my gold gelly roll pen to add highlights to the sheppards and sheep where the glow from Gabrielle would hit them. Blue buttons with white swirls and tiny flowers on them are from Fabricland. The gold and white cording used for the bow was from the local Dollar Giant dollar store. Gabrielle's wings are covered with a thin layer of Aileen's craft glue with fine white glitter on top to give them some sparkle.

I will download the front of the card hopefully tomorrow.
