Watercooler Wednesday Challenge – WWC52 – Anything Goes when it comes to Angels

WWC52 – Anything Goes Challenge

WWC52

Welcome to this weeks Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Today…Anything Goes.  Don’t you love days like that…when anything is possible?  Well…as far as the challenge goes…today…anything goes!   The rest of your day/week is totally up to you and the other rules in your life.  {grin}

Since anything goes today….I’ve decided to spread my wings.  Literally.

Wings of Love – A Valentine Angel

Don’t you love my consistent photography?   Sigh.  That’s what happens when you take pictures on different days with different lighting available.

I’m not sure why, but I love to give my angels brown hair.  I know many artists show them with a more ethereal blonde but I like to think they get to choose their own hair color…or maybe even change it as the whim strikes.  😀

If you’ve seen my other angels you’ll know I generally leave their faces blank, like the Amish and Shaker dolls I grew up playing with.  Today I decided to get brave and try drawing in a face as many others do.  What do you think?  Face or no face?   And which ‘wings of love’ version is your favorite.  I’d really like to know.  One hint about these little winged wonders.  They are so easy to make and  work for any time of the year.  Christmas, Valentines, Easter and so on.  It’s all in the papers and accessories.  Just like the real deal…they work all year long.

Supplies:

Stamps: None

Inks:  Basic Black Journaling pen

Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Cardstocks.  Real Red Glimmer Paper.  Gold Foil Paper (candle) .  Under the Tree Specialty Paper (ret.)

Punches: Party Punch Pack (Occasions Catalog),  Itty Bitty Punch Pack (ret. – hair), 1-1/4″ Circle, Word Window

Tools & Adhesives:  Big Shot, Circle Collection Framelit dies, Little Letter Thinlits,  Gold Metallic Thread, Metallic Foil Doilies, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Tombow Liquid Glue, Glue Dots.

*********

I’m trying to decide if I should be worried or not.  The last two challenge projects have had no actual stamping!  Sheesh.   Stampin’ Up may bounce me as a demonstrator if this keeps up.  Of course…I did use Stampin’ Up dies and punches…so they may forgive me.  LOL

In case you are wondering, the primary piece of the angel is a full large scalloped circle die cut.  The largest circle in the Circles Collection Framelits.  It’s cut into thirds (more or less).  The skirt is 8 scallops and the wings are each 11 scallops.  The cross point is about two thirds up to the top of the circle.  I’ll try to take some pictures later this week so you can see exactly what I mean.  The halo is the smaller of the two sizes of metallic foil doilies and the skirt trim/petticoat is a cut down piece of the larger doily.  I give the wings a fold at about the 3rd scallop so that when they are hung up they really do look like the wings are working.  Adds a bit more of a 3D look as well.

That’s it for this challenge.  To see the rest of the design teams Anything Goes Challenge contributions head on over to the Challenge blog website here.   That’s also where you can add your own creation with the linky doodad.  When you add your own design and there are more than three entries, one of you will be a challenge winner or runner up and have the option to place our new badges on your own site.  Of course…you’ll also win bragging rights!
