A Sweet little Ragged Angel

Happy Sunday to everyone.  The weather here has really changed and Autumn has arrived.  I love this time of year - as long as its not to cold. The colours of Autumn are wonderful and I am now seriously thinking about Christmas.

This fabulous sweet image from Mo Manning is called Ragged Angel and I have coloured and glittered the image and mounted this on an easel card and used distressing inks, lace and pearls, ribbon and sparkle.   I have experimented with paper weaving as I have never used this technique before and have produced two patchwork paper heart pockets and a patchwork label with matching topper.

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges.

A closer view of the front of the card.  The image is mounted as a circular die cut and I have used a die cut circular frame distressed with vintage inks from Tim Holtz.  Promarker and Fleximarker pens have been used to colour and shade the image.  I have used glitter for the wings and details and Snow Marker Pen for definition.  The snowflakes are die cuts which I have glittered and added pearls form Kaisercraft.  The papers are three 12 x 12 designer sheets from my stash.  I created the patchwork heart using a tutorial from Stamp ARTic  The hearts are little pockets and the pocket on the front of the card contains a matching patchwork label.  I have used lace to decorate the heart pocket on the front of the card. 

Image showing the inside of the Easel Card featuring another decorated patchwork pocket with foiled Merry Christmas greeting.

A closer view of the patchwork label.  I have used a lovely rich red ribbon from my stash and a glittered die cut star to decorate.  There is plain circle greeting panel on the back of the label for recording a message.

The card and label

A closer view of the card when closed, this is a 6" x 6" card.   I hope you like this card, please let me know what you think.   I am trying to use techniques which are new to me with most of the cards that I make.  There is a lot of work in this card but I really enjoyed making this.  I think I will be making more paper patchwork/weaving projects as I think  it looks so good.

Thank you for reading this post.  Warm weekend wishes to all.
