Today is a very special day for me. A year ago today I took the plunge and created my blog. This was the very first card I blogged. Cute and not bad but no where near the standard I'm at today.
As you can see my colouring has improved immensely partly because of all those Make It Crafty Colour challenges I took part in, but mostly with practice, determination and a lot of inspiration from a lot of talented people (mainly ladies but there are some guys out there!).
So to celebrate I'm sharing this card which was created while my hubby was watching Constantine. I was asking if he could think of any films with angels in - and was like DUH!! What's on the TV!!
The image is Angel from The East Wind and she looks like she's at the top of a snowy mountain surveying the world below. She's been coloured with Copics and I've added a touch of black polychromos pencil to her hair to enhance the silver look.
The speckled snow was created with some embossing enamel.
I've kept her as the main focus of the card and just used some distressed design papers from Lili of the Valley. The only other embellishment is some pearl self adhesive gems. I've left her without a sentiment so she can be customised.
Thanks for dropping my to share in my 1st anniversary.
