May Angels Watch Over You

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi, Gail here today.  Are you ready??  Only a few days til the jolly red man gets stuck in the chimney!  And while everyone is choking on the smoke and Rudolf is trying to pull him out, you are carrying on as usual and trying to get the table set up.  And maybe you have invited some strangers to dinner, or the oldies, or maybe even the youngsters, need a little aide de memoire for who's who?  So I decided, since any new cards probably won't make it through the snow in time for the big day, that I would play about and make some table place cards.  This was more fun than a box of chocolate frogs!!!!
I used Carmen's Veranda's Quilted Wing Angel and some patterned card.
I started by stamping, embossing and fussy cutting Carmen's Veranda Quilted Wing Angel and Sheep Doll.  I coloured with distress inks, and gold, red and brown marker pens.  Then I decided to just go with the angels for this set.  The sheep will be back later...... 
To make the place card bases I cut some patterned paper into 4x4" squares, folded in half,  then used an oval die to cut off the bottom to give a more interesting shape.  I added some irridescent glitter to the wings and Windsor and Newton Iridescent Watercolour medium to the dress.  This is like Wink of Stella, but comes in a good size bottle, so you can get sparkly all over!!  I think you can see the glimmer in the main picture.
Off to make 5 more of these while the reindeer is cooking.  
Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget you can link up all your Christmas or Winter stamped makes to our challenge right up to the end of the month.  See you there.  Hugz
