Angel Gate

I've been published again, this time with a little
off-the-page canvas that I called Angel Gate.

I started by glueing a layer of white tissue paper to the pre-gessoed canvas, then added 'squeezed lemonade', 'mustard seed' and 'fossilized amber' Distress Inks until I was happy with the colour.

A script stamp was added randomly, followed by Modellier Creme through a stencil and allowed to dry.

A chipboard gate was given some finger painting using Silk glaze,
and finished off with crackle accents for added interest.

The angel was coloured with pencils for her skin and hair, and Distress Ink for her dress and wings.
Although you can't see it in the photo, her wings have Wink of Stella shimmer added.

You can find these instructions and lots more, in Issue 5 of Creative Papercraft - out now!

Carabelle Studio - 'an angel to love'

I'm off to read all the other projects, so until next time .....
Happy Crafting!
