Now for the card: Images are all available from Rubbernecker Stamp Co. I used a Pearlized Distress mist to create the acrylic resist. Colors include, Tea Dye ink/blush perfect pearls, Red Brick ink/red perfect pearls & Scattered Straw ink/bronze perfect pearls. After stamping the angel boy, I lightly highlighted him with copic markers and some Sakura Stardust gel pen. The wings are Tim Holtz grungeboard that was painted with Frayed Burlap crackle paint. They were sponged with tea dye distress ink and black soot. Clock faces, brads and the dymo label were added to finish it off. Hope you like it as much as I do!

My 2nd card is for CC180, the color challenge at Splitcoast today. Yummy colors - Blush, Ruby, Cocoa. I only used Blush and Cocoa CS. The red layer is actually cocoa CS that was embossed with the baroque background (a fave of mine) using Tattered Rose Distress EP. The red tone comes from the Pearlized Shimmer Distress mist made by combining a dropper full of Fired Brick Distress Reinker, a little Red Perfect Pearls and water. The Blush layer was inked with Tattered Rose Distress ink, rock n rolled in Fired Brick, misted with water and stamped. I sponged the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink and also stamped the sentiment with it. The photo corners are from Spellbinders Hdw. & Hinges Shapeabilities set.
