I used the Freshly Made Sketches #79 for this week's Merry Monday Tic Tac Toe challenge. I chose the center row, Die Cuts, Paper Piecing or Piercing and Angel. I love this cute little angel from MFT Pure Innocence line. She is stamped on X-Press It Blending CS and colored with Copics. I paper-pieced the angel's dress, halo and wings. I stamped the wings on vellum with Mememto Black ink, cut them out leaving a tab to glue under the dress and bent them forward for added dimension. I shaded the edges of her dress to give it some dimension. I used SU Basic Black and Sahara Sand CS and SU and MME DSP; and Lacey Circles and Circles Nestabilities. The angel image and circle panel are mounted on foam dimensional. The ribbon is SU Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon and the border is SU Scallop Border punch. The "O Holy Night" is a stamp from Michael's dollar bin that I have had for quite some time, and thought it appropriate to use with the angel. The Sahara Sand panel is stamped with SU Sanded background stamp (retired).
