Stamped Angel Distress Tag

 My local art group does a monthly swap and I created this tag for one of the girls, who requested an angel theme.  The only stamps I have with angels are for Christmas, but I tried to make it work.  This one is by Stampington & Co.  I layered it over my new Tim Holtz Ornate Frame 2 die painted.  The background was one of my favorite distress ink backgrounds.  I stamped over the wet ink with more blue ink and it created the prettiest faded image of the ornate design, also by Tim.  I lightly embossed the edges of the tag with gold EP and flecked some watery Perfect Pearls over the tag.
 I have had these brass wings for over 10 years, and thought it would be cool to use them behind the handmade flower.  I really liked the effect.  The flowers were made with the Tattered Florals die using printed scrapbook paper.  I wasn't into the color, so I spritzed it with spray ink, then rubbed it with watery Perfect Pearls to make some highlights.  The center is a blue rhinestone.
 The always stamp was stolen borrowed from my mom and I just love the script.  It's Penny Black.  I hope you enjoyed seeing this sweet little project.  It's fun to make things specifically for people, sometimes.  Don' you think?

Another gorgeous art piece. Love the angel, and liked the effect of your blue overstamping on the blue. What really got my eye was that fabulous blue flower, edged with the gold. That is just a stunning embellie to a really lovely blue & gold tag. And how super that your stash angel wings worked so perfectly for an extra layered detail. TFS & Hugs
