Earth Angel

Faced with several challenges, and running out of time, I finally figured out a way to meet them with this one Earth Angel!

Now, my Steampunk challenge at SanDee and Amelie's is to do something using my favorite technique. One of my favorites is to use distress stains and make ribbons. I also love playing with my markers and doing some "water coloring".

I took it a bit further and stained my wings for an art showing also.

Now, to meet the Big Stamp challenge at Simon Says, I used the earth angel stamp and water colored it with my Tim Holtz markers. I love how easy this is to do using a water brush.


Made a little top hat for her, and added gears to give her more of a steampunk twist,and I think she is ready to fly!

Inspiration Journal's challenge for April is to use a few of your favorite things, and I did - distress stains, markers, ribbons, stamp...

Perfect angel in honor of Earth Day this week!
