Crafty Individuals October Challenge - Wings

I missed last month's challenge - time runs so fast. especially when you are my age ha ha - so I was determined to have a go this month where the theme is 'Winged things'.   Had lots of ideas for this but finally settled on angels and made a hanging.

Not a lot of stamping on this one apart from the sentiment which a friend gave me last week - untouched.  It isn't a CI stamp but one designed by the now defunct Katy's Corner, however most of the rest of the piece are CI products.

The frame (CI) was coloured with acrylic Dabbers in a combination of Sail Boat Blue, Raspberry and Pearl.  I over-stamped the frame with one of the flourishes from CI plate 235 but this doesn't show up very well in the photo - Brilliance silver.  German scrap round the frame and the wings were gold but Lumieres soon fixed that.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece from the CI Christmas paper book and the angel's face in the bottletop is punched from the Christmas image book.

Another enjoyable piece to work on - and all done this afternoon which for me (little Miss Prevarication) is amazing.  There is some beautiful work on the Crafty Individuals' blog - why don't  you pop over and have browse.
