Simply Angellic

Hello my lovely followers! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and your Monday is off to a good start!
Today I've got a wonderful Sassy to share with you! Here is...

 ...'Tiffany' as an angel. I got the wonderful wings idea from my teammate Paula who added butterfly wings and I just loved it! I found these angel like wings in some really old stamps from Fancy Pants and thought they would go wonderfully! I also thought a card like this needs to stand up, so it's also an...

 ...easel card. This isn't the best of views, but I'm terrible at taking pic's of these, sorry. It is very pretty IRL.

These gorgeous papers are from Kaiser Kraft and since I originally had purple in mind these were perfect! I wasn't thinking flowers for this one and happily I came across this prima butterfly I got ages ago and then I found this leftover prima swirl and though perfect! Lastly, I added some stickles for and even more fairytaleish effect.

I really went outside my comfort zone when coloring her, but I'm really glad I did. I'm loving the white hair and grayish eyes and I can't wait to experiment with more fun options!

Here are my copics. There's a lot there, but I had actually first colored her skirt a lighter purple, but then decided it didn't contrast enough with the background so I colored over it with the darker BV's I again did some extra shading with some gray pencils too.

Well, that's all for today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

That is just stunning & I love the violet eyeshdaow you gave her & the depth there is in her hair ornament. The pearl swirl works beautfiully with the swirls on the patterned paper behind & her wings are a lovely shape. I have to say I like seeing what you are doing in challenging yourself too. That butterfly is a real stunner & I love the way the texture in that embellishment picks up on the ruffles of her skirt - aha - just seen why those wings work so well: the serrated effect of their edges picks up on the skirt ruffles & the hair ornament too. Thank you too for your lovely comment on my blog - the building work has kept me fairly occupied of late but I'm missing my colouring & card work.
Much love
