I Brake For Angels!

I have a thing for angel images. When I saw From Heaven Angel Large (Stampingback)
at I Brake For Stamps, I just had to get her.  Her tattered wings and her crestfallen expression tugged at my heart strings. 

From Heaven Angel was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock because I brought my colored pencils with me on holiday, mistakenly thinking that I'd get some time to color. Nope. Anyway, I colored her with Copic markers, then grabbed my Skullduggery stencil (Andy Skinner/Tando) and traced it with a Black Multi-liner pen (Copic). The skull was colored with Copic markers. A few cracks were added with the Multi-liner, because I like my skulls (not my personal skull or those of anyone I know) cracked. 

The image panel was die-cut with one of the dies from the Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). Black cardstock was die-cut with the next largest die from that set.

Yellow chalk pencil (Derwent) was used to outline the image. Shimmery yellow and blue palette chalk (Pebbles) was used to add the background. When that was done, the image panel was edged with Black Soot Distress ink (Ranger) and matted with the black die-cut.

Grey cardstock was debossed with the Clocks Embossing Plate (Cherry Lynn Designs) then sponged with Black Soot Distress ink.
