I Believe in Angels

Simon Says Stamp challenge this week is to be inspired by a song title. Mine in "I Believe in Angels" by Abba. This gorgeous image is from Sweet Pea Stamps. I have coloured her with Promarkers, the papers are Basic Grey and the swirls are Grungeboard which I coloured with a PM as well. Sentiment is Stampin' Up!
Here's a closer look

I had problems with her hair- a lesson learned about switching the ultra fine nibs between colour families lol!I have since ordered some more.I also added some white gel pen dots around the image, something I saw my blogging buddy Coops doing. It's not as effective as when she does it, practice required!
I am also entering this card into the following challenges
Flutterby Wednesday - use a butterfly, fairy or angel on your card
Bunny-Zoe monthly challenge - sketch

thanks for visiting, hope you have a lovely weekend

What a beautiful angel Shazza! Your card is fabulous too :) I think her hair looks great... not sure what problem you were having.
