Rachel Anderson's Angelic

My card this week features Rachel Anderson's beautiful Angelic digi stamp. There's something hauntingly beautiful about this image of a 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. :)

  1. Fabulous softness to this one Ali. Beautiful car.
    Best wishes, Sharon

  2. Love this card, Ali! It's so soft and beautiful, it's a fantastic harmony in this card. So lovely!
    Love those banners and MF corners too.

    Hugs, Randi

  3. That ethereal look to this image is what drew me to her before and your creation only makes her lovelier Ali.
    The vellum works so well with the soft colors you've chosen and I like the pearl edging!

  4. Wow, Ali, I so love your card you made with one of my fave images. The soft colouring is brilliant and the softness of the whole card is brilliant. Perfect paper choice and beautiful embellished.
    Hugs, Karina

  5. This is stunning Ali. I love all the lace and softness.

  6. So beautiful! I love that stamp and you made a card that gives it so much more sweetness. Hugs Milo <3

  7. Gorgeous Ali, I hope everyone will go an take a look at the original stamp so they can see how totally opposite your card makes this image look. It's just amazing and looks totally opposite from the aritist's coloring. stunning.

  8. Ali, so pretty, I love seeing this image used as I think it is so precious. You did an amazing job with this image.
