I made this card in honor of my grandmother. She is in a nursing home and doesn't remember much anymore nor does she do the things she used to do. It's like she is a shadow of the person she used to be. She used to crotchet alot and gave all of us doilies on a regular basis.
This is for the Sat. challenge and my inspiration was a doily and an angel figure. The angel on the web. was blue, but I made mine in pinks and purples because those would be colors my grandma would like better.
Stamps -- On Angel Wings, by SU!, the doily is froma local craft store.
paper -- brilliant blue, and something close to the old orchid opulence, and white.
Accessories-- 2 different paper punches and embossing border folder.
Ink -- lovely lilac and basic black
Technique -- water coloring w/pencils and using chalks
Thanks for looking.
