I Brake for Angels ..

Hello IBFS fans !!
It's Crystal here and today I made a Christmas card using the digi stamp Peace Angel by Rick St Dennis from I Brake for Stamps online store.  Foiling is all the rage currently so I decided to play with some gold foil on this angel .

First I copic colored her and the fussy cut her out with my Brother Scan N Cut 2


see how perfect this machine can cut your digi stamp or hand stamped images , I had it cut right on the line and look at the hole no black left behind it cut perfectly


so now that we have her cut out I got out my toner marker to make the areas want gold , I need to color them with this black toner marker first , I did the stars and the wings and the swirls in the neckline and sleeves


I ran her thru the laminator with a gold deco foil sheet , well I was not thinking but I print my digi stamps on a laser printer that uses black toner  ( it is copic marker friendly to print digi's on a laser printer )and guess what happened, something I call a "Happy Accident " , it gold foiled almost all the line work on the image , I am trying to capture the gold shiny beauty of this image she is truly heavenly looking ...

I used Tim Holtz Holiday words script dies and cut gold glitter cardstock words Peace on Earth
