Polkadoodles Fairy Wings Challenge

This is my first entry ever in a craft challange. Polkadoodles challange this week is all about fairy wings and entries must feature a Angelberry digistamp, but dont worry if you dont have one as Polkadoodles are offering a randomly chosen Angelberry digistamp to send to you if you email them to take part in this challenge.

My digistamp arrived this morning and I received the Angelberry angel with tree. This looked a bit tricky given thr hairstyle with stars entwined through it but it was a good challenge (as it did challenge me).

My cutting out isn't perfect and due to the complexity of cutting this stamp out I decided I would try something different for me and put it into Craft Artist, doing all my matting and layering then printing it out to colour the image. I used the free Christmas digikits from Craft Artist and printed on nenah cardstock. One printed I coloured the image using Spectrum Noir pens and added glitter to the star going ontop of the tree and I foiled a gold belt onto the angel. I then added a bit of foiling to the corners using redliner tape and Stix2 foil, and added some gems to look a bit like brads.

I hope you like it! I had lots of fun trying something new!
