Wings of Hope


Hello Everyone!  Thank you for coming by today.  I am sharing a card that I have made for Whimsy Stamps (in conjunction with artist Crissy Armstrong) to help aid in the relief efforts for Haiti.  Crissy created this absolutely GORGEOUS image called "Wings of Hope," an exclusive image created to raise funds for the Red Cross and Haiti.  The image symbolizes the hope we send to all of the victims, their families and all of the workers and volunteers racing to save the people of Haiti.  The image is being sold as a digital image at Whimsy Stamps.  Proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross.  

I colored the image with watercolor pencils and 3D glitter paint in baby pink.  The paper is K&Co.  I embossed the smaller pieces with the script folder for CB and inked the edges in Mellow Moss SU ink.  I used scalloped edging scissors for the center circle. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your support of this cause.  Visit Whimsy Stamps for more information.

Speaking of Whimsy...please come back tomorrow for a Snowball Fight!  There's a new release you won't want to miss!  See you at 12noon EST to play along!
