Valerie Wade - Christmas Angel

 Sunday is here and Christmas is over with for yet another year.  I hope you all had a good time celebrating with your friends and family.  It is time for me to show you some Sweet Pea Stamps creations.

Here is another ornament.  I have made it for a friend to put on their tree.  I have used Valerie Wade's digital stamp but she is also available as a single rubber stamp and is called "Christmas Angel".  Isn't she a beauty??  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and highlighted her wings with my clear Wink of Stella pen.
I have covered an MDF tree with gesso and then a green acrylic paint.  I have then used an Aged Beautifully stamp by Sheena Douglass to add some dimension to the tree.  I have then added decorative bells, gems, pearls, glitter scrolls and twine to the tree.  This is an ornament that can come out year after year.

I am entering this ornament into the following challenges:
