ODBDSLC 201: Angel WIngs

The challenge this week at ODBD Shining the Light Challenge is to "Wing it!"  And surprisingly, I'm not using butterflies!  :)  ODBD has just released some beautiful Angel themed sets I just had to use.  I love the calligraphic touches on the font of ODBD's newest release.  When the font is just gorgeous, I like to go with cleaner cards.  For this one, I used watercolor paper to do a blue wash but then I went back and sponged the edges after I die cut out the window.

The angel wings are just gorgeous aren't they?  They extended over the edge of the card so I glued several layers together to make it sturdier so they would not get bent.  This also gave it some great dimension and a lot easier to glue onto the card.  I just recently discovered this very basic way of strengthening all those lovely delicate dies - such an aha! moment for me.  Hope it helps you too!
