Paper Sweeties November Release Day 1 - Angel

Hi and Welcome!  For the next four days (November 13 - 16) the Paper Sweeties design team will be showing you some previews of the new Paper Sweeties sets that will be released on Thursday, November 15.  Debbie came up with lots of fabulous sets that are perfect for celebrating the holidays.  Today I'm using a new set called "Christmas Blessings" featuring an angel costume for any of the Sweeties girls, and some sentiments. 
To get the halo on Abigail's pretty little head I put a piece of tape over the bow in her hair on the stamp before I inked it up.  Then I removed the tape and stamped it - magic -  the bow doesn't show up!  Next I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to perfectly place the halo.  The sandals are from the "Mahalo!" set.  I stamped them right on top of her feet so no fussy cutting was necessary.  I colored her angel outfit with only one color Copic using long brush strokes to blend into the mostly white outfit.

I  hope you will hop on over to the other DT member blogs to get a peek at the new releases. Just click on their names below and you're there!
