"Sending Love" with SCACD

Good morning!! Have you seen the recent re-release of the gorgeous Guardian Angels at SCACD?? I adore these angels. They are so versatile and an absolute joy to colour. This is "Sending Love Angel". I decided to pull out a canvas and some paints to create a's been a very long time since I've attempted to paint anything, so I am more than a bit rusty! (you can find canvases in the Mixed Media section at SCACD) To be honest, I need to invest in some better brushes I used some old inexpensive ones I've had kicking around for an eternity, lol. I used some matte medium to thin my paints out a bit to ease with the blending transitions. "Sending Love Angel" was stamped in Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. Her wings were given a coat of Stardust Stickles and she was adhered with the matte medium. I am a fan of Neenah paper for colouring with Copics, but thought I'd try out some cheap cardstock I have for using on the interior of my cards. It actually wasn't too bad for blending, but as it has a bit more "tooth" than what I prefer, I don't think I'll reach for it very often. It is however, a thinner paper than Neenah and so it has lower profile when adhered to the canvas.
