Wish Upon a Star

Hi all,

I’m popping in with a colorful Christmas card to share with you today!  I used a cute angel image from the Whipper Snapper cling set: Spirit of Christmas and paired it with some gloriously bright Santa’s Workshop designer paper.


I colored the sweet angel with Copic Markers and then painted portions of the image with Smooch.  I was in the mood to add a touch of shabbiness so I distressed edges and sprayed some Glimmer Mist on the background of the main image.  I added a few fun accents such as vintage seam bindng, rhinestones, a clear heart and a clothespin.  I’ve had those little wooden pins for almost a year and hadn’t used a single one… sigh… I over organized and forgot I had ‘em! ;)


That is it for me today.  My big project is done but I need to take pictures of it… which means I need to find a good location with plenty of light to hang it first.  But soon… I will be sharing it! ;)

Paper: Naturals White (SU!), Kraft (PTI), Choice Snow White (TE), Santa’s Workshop (Doodlebug).

  1. Cute card. I love the colors and how you painted portions of the image with Smooch. I have seen Smooch for sale at the store but was never brave enough to buy some. Well now that I see how pretty it is, I may just have to go out and get some. :-)
