Stained Glass Angel from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, the weekend is here at last so hopefully that means lots of playtime! Today's card is one of my samples with the gorgeous new Christmas stamps from Chocolate Baroque, you can find them all here. The angel is a real beauty, she's from 'A Child is Born'

I wanted to give the impression of the angel coming to life and flying out of the stained glass windows so I began by stamping the window fragments and embossing with Gold embossing powder. I used distress inks around the edges, starting with Faded Jeans and then adding Stormy sky and then Chipped Sapphire. I painted the glass in the windows with twinkling H20 paints and then stamped the snowflakes in the corners and the sentiment (from Christmas Magic)  and embossed with gold.

I stamped the angel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with Graph'It markers before cutting her out and layering her over the background with 3d foam pads.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges
Hobbybook: embossing
Inky Chicks: anything goes
Inky Impressions: anything goes
Winter Wonderland: layer it up
Thanks so much for visiting today
