If you've come from Deb's blog then you are in the right place, if not, you may want to start back at the ODBD Blog so you don't miss any of today's creations!!!  :)

 Today I'm using one of the very first sets I ever bought from ODBD, simply titled, ANGEL.  I have always loved angels and had various types decorating my home for years, so this was a must have for me!  :)

I began with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with Very Vanilla and a piece of Kaisercraft December 25th DP.  Next I added a piece of paper doily that I lightly airbrushed with my E51 Copic Marker and then added a strip of Red (punched with the Deco Fan border punch), topped with another piece of December 25th.  Over this I've added a piece of vanilla (airbrushed with E23 Copic Marker) that has been cut with Twisted Metal Tags and Accents Shapeabilities and glued down with the X-press It Glue Marker.  The Angel has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R32, R35, R37, R39, E000, E01, E11, E21, E23, E25, N1, N3).  I've added some Clear Spica to the wings for sparkle and then popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a couple of red pearls to the top corner.
Inside I've stamped the Angel in Versamark to give the watermark effect and then stamped the sentiment onto vanilla and cut it out with Fancy Tags Shapeabilities.

Stamps - Angel (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Kaisercraft December 25th DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessories - Copics, Airbrush System, Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents and Fancy Tags Dies, MS Deco Fan Border Punch, Paper Doily, Kaisercraft Red Pearls, X-press It High Tack Foam Tape.

That's all from me, your next stop is the amazingly inspirational SILKE!!!

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the hop!!
