Today I’m sharing a bright sherbet colored design using a combination of several of the new release items and a few previously released goodies. I love to combine products and really fill the page to create my scenes and it wasn’t hard to achieve gorgeous results with these new Heffy Doodle products.
The first thing I started with was my background layer, I used the new Stitched Hearts Background Die to cut a 4.25 x 5.5 panel from soft pink cardstock. I lightly inked the edges of the panel with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink to give a little dept, and splattering with glittery Perfect Pearls and a metallic blush pink ink. Next, I used a same sized stitched rectangle die to cut two panels from bright white Neenah Solar cardstock and vellum. I used the stitched Silver Lining Cloud Borders to trim those panels, to make layered clouds, before gently inking the edges of the shorter white cloud with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink.
Next I stamped my images from the My Little Angel stamp set and colored them with fun sherbet hues, before using the My Little Angel Dies to cut out the characters. I love that the dies cut out the hands so they can hold the accessories. After my die cutting was complete I used acrylic paint and a dotting tool to add tiny white dot highlights to my images, then I used a glittery Spectrum Noir Sparkle brush to add shimmer to the halos and harps.
I die cut the script To My , with the new word dies, from the remainder of the pink cardstock. Then I used a small banner die from the previously released Tag Along Die Set to stamp my sentiment from the My Little Angel stamp set. Using a verity of glues and adhesive tapes I built my scene. I secured the vellum in the lower portion where I knew it wouldn’t be visible, then my inked white cloud layer over top. Next my “guardian angel” banner centered on the bottom, with the “To my” overlapping on top. The green haired angel appeared smallest to me so I added her to the top portion of the sky so the perspective seemed correct, then I staggered my remaining angels in the center. I added the music notes across the scene and a few clear sequins to finish it all up.
