Noel Angel


Noel Angel is another new stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Even though the included sentiments are Christmas themed, I think the image itself can be used for a variety of occasions.

I stamped the image and sentiment in VersaMark and applied Vintage embossing powder to the image and Gold Detail to the sentiment and heat set.  I wanted her dress to have a velvet look and feel, so I added Palm Leaf flock to accomplish this.  The rest of the image is colored with Copic markers.  Eggplant glitter was added to the flowers in her hair and the sash for a touch of bling.

Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Doily Oval die was used to cut the image out and I blended the background with Distress Inks (Shaded Lilac, Antique Linen).

What a great technique! using the antique embossing for the image instead of just black ink makes her look very ethereal without a harsh black outline, I love it!
