Cute Card Thursday Challenge 41 "Open Theme"

Over on Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog this week, the final theme for 2008 is an open one. So I have made this Angel Anya card. Anya stamps are by Pink Poison, but in 2009 they will be known as "The Greetings Farm". So I have coloured Anya this time using Aqua ProMarkers. I got these pens a few weeks ago from Silly Monkey Crafts but have only just managed to use them to good effect....because I didn't have the right paper. So after reading recommendations to use hot pressed paper....I went to buy a sheet from HobbyCraft, and this is the result. I am actually pretty pleased as I have real trouble watercolouring in the past...so maybe it was the cardstocks fault and not mine...hehehe.

I have used the following Aqua ProMarkers to colour Anya...
Cadium Red (Skin)
Violet Hue (Hair)
Cerulean Blue (Dress)
The wings of the Angel have added Stickles "Star Dust" and the Halo is Ice Stickles "Mint Ice"...for sparkle. The papers are by Making Memories from an old 6x6 paper pad, and the purple cardstock is by Bazzill from a pack of 8x8 "Fourz". I have added some Prima blossoms with a glitter brad and spacer, and some jingle bells that I got in HobbyCraft (150 for £1.95) they are so cute, finished off with a sentiment by Hero Arts.

Thanks ladies for the fab cards, and for all the inspiration you have provided my in 2008, I look forward to seeing what you bring us in 2009.
