Stamp mixed media paper with Stampendous Cling Angel Sisters Stamp using SurfaceZ® in Fudge. Place a drop of IZINK Tomato into palette paper. Thin with water using a paint brush. Blot the brush on paper towel to remove excess water, and wash over the red areas of the design. Refer to the above photo. Wash the gold areas with thinned IZINK Gold and the white areas with IZINK Opaline. Shade all of the colors with full strength ink with the exception of white areas. Add a blush of red mixed with gold to blush the angel’s cheeks. Using Clearsnap® Glue Gloss brush over the wings and sprinkle with Winter Frost Glitter.
Cut gold cardstock 4.5 ” by 6.5″, star paper 4.25″ by 6.25″, and red paper 3.25″ by 4.75″. Using Clearsnap® Glue Gloss apply along edges of gold and red papers, sprinkle with Fools Gold Glitter. Apply to plaque using Sticky panels beginning with gold paper, then star, and finally red paper. Using Foam adhesive squares mount the angles in the center of the red paper. Using the star punch, punch out three stars, remove one side of adhesive and apply around angles. remove the top paper and sprinkle with Winter Frost Glitter.
I hope you enjoyed this fun project. If you would like to do the other side of the plaque simply choose another stamp and “paint” in the same manner! Have a great Holiday Season filled with many blessings!
