Watercoloured Angel

My stamp club ladies wanted to do some more watercolouring, so this is what I came up with. It needed to be fairly straightforward as it was a big group of ladies this month, but still nice. I tried a few versions, and settled on this one. It's an unconventional colour scheme, but I was short on designer series paper, so purple and yellow it was! Maybe more an Advent colour scheme with the purple and blue, and the yellow of the candle flames. Yeah, that's it, that's what I planned all along. (That's now my story and I'll stick to it!)

The angel is from Holy Triptych and is embossed in gold on watercolour paper. We used Stampin' Spots mooshed (the technical term) on yogurt lids for our colour, applied with aquapainters. The image is mounted on elegant eggplant on a gate-fold card base, secured with a punched circle (from the scraps of the saffron dsp!).

Thanks for looking!
