Angelic

My card for Sweet Pea Stamps this week features Rachel Anderson's beautiful Angelic digi stamp. It's such a pretty, delicate image and there's something very poignant and even melancholy about this solitary angel crouching in the waves.
I coloured the figure with my Promarkers, using soft pastel colours and lots of white space for a soft, almost bleached-out look, and used Flexmarkers for a really pale, subtle background:
For the card I used a white 8x8 card blank and some pretty Craftwork Cards papers that toned really well with my colour scheme on the digi image. I added a punched border, some lace and pearls, some vellum banners (also from Craftwork Cards) and some pretty Melissa Frances resin corners.
A fairly simple card that lets the beautiful image take centre stage. :)

That's such a lovely card. Do you know, we were going through our stamp stash and found a Sweet pea stamp we didn't even know we had.
