Christmas Angel tag for Unity Stamps + Prize

This is one of two projects that I'm sharing today.  (If you're looking for my project with Graciellie Design, go here.)  It's day 3 of my feature with the Unity Stamp Company as their Growing in Unity Girl.  Today, I've made a glittery vintage Christmas tag, featuring the Susan Weckesser stamp set, "World of Christmas".




My stamp was inked with Ranger Ink Distress Oxide in Vintage Photo, on a trimmed piece of Heartfelt Creations designer paper from the Every Day Heroes collection.  The paper design and colors went well with the vintage look that I was going for.  

I've fashioned some wings for this sweet angel, out of a medium sized white ribbon rosette, trimmed in half, then cut some half moon shaped strips from May Arts Ribbon sheer glitter ribbon and stapled them over the partial stamped wing image.  Her little halo is a tiny strip of tinsel string adhered with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L extreme tape.  I've also embossed some gold stickles glitter glue and Platinum Pearl liquid pearls with a dot stencil.   I quickly dried them with my heat emboss tool to speed things along.

Behind my tag, I have an extra layer with gold satin ribbon peeking out, along with gold mesh ribbon.  The topper on my tag was achieved by using some Sizzix dies.  Did I mention I tinted her eyes, just a touch?  I used the fine tip of a teal Marvy Le Plume II brush marker.



I intended to add a sentiment but, guess what?  I forgot!  I was so happy with this little angel, I couldn't wait to take her picture.  I think she looks just fine without a sentiment though.

Be sure and leave a comment on my blog post each day this week, to be entered to win one of two grab bags of 25 stamps from Unity.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
