Hugs From Heaven

Guess what day it is? You guessed right...it's release day at Doodle Pantry. What a fabulous release this month. In addition to the new sets Laurie has created, she has released several old sets that she colored and she is releasing 28 sets that were previously sold at Clearly Digi Stamps. Check out the What's New? section for a list of everything available this month!

The birdie image and the sentiment are from the Angel Birdie set, and the digital paper is from the new Office Accents set. I printed the birdie with the kitten image twice on white card stock and once on greenish-blue vellum paper. I cut around the tips of the wings on the first image, and then used a classic oval from Spellbinder's to get the shape. I cut out the wings from the other white card stock and the greenish-blue vellum and set them aside. The image was colored with Copic markers (bird - Y00, Y11, YG21; beak & feet - YR20, YR23; cheeks and kitty nose - R000; kitten - N3, N5; robe BG000, BG13, BG49). The halo was colored with gold glitter pen by Sakura and then I added Star Dust glitter glue. Star Dust glitter glue was also used on the tips of the vellum wings and then again to color in the wings on top. The 2 additional sets of wings were adhered with pop dots. I printed the digital paper and adhered it to black card stock and then a white card stock base. I adhered the image to a black oval and then to the digital paper. I used a white satin ribbon across the bottom and then added the sentiment, which was punched out using 2 oval punches from Stampin' Up! Last, I added tiny clear crystals randomly on the digital paper for sparkle.

This is one of the sweetest sets I've seen in a long time. I love the birdie series that Laurie has created, and this is no exception. There are different images of the angel biride and sentiments and digital papers as well. This is a fabulous set.
