Christmas Angel #Rita Barakat

Rita Barakat creates the cutest ephemera. The Angel Collection is one of my favorites.
My Christmas Angel was one of the easiest to create. I purchased the acrylic angel wings at my local craft store, I then trimmed off the wings, she was getting an upgrade after all. I then slightly curled the angel so that I glue it to the wings.

I then took Art Anthology's Twilight Stencil and Tink Sorbet Dimensional Medium to alter the Kraft box. I used a die to cut the " Merry Christmas" and once the dimensional medium was dried I glued it down and added a green metallic ribbon.

Waiting for the dimensional medium to dry took about an hour, otherwise everything else went super fast to make. She's nicely nestled in her box waiting for her new home.

I hope you enjoyed my project. Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas!

Christmas with Rita Barakat & Art Anthology

Welcome to the Rita Barakat & Art Anthology Blog Hop! Christmas crafting is now in full swing and I have a Christmas tags to share with a bit of mixed media.
If you are arriving from Susan chanel you are right on track. This hop is a short one but full of fun Christmas inspiration.

I used Rita's latest ephemera, A Merry Little Christmas collection. Super adorbs images!
I love my purples and blues! I used Art Anthology's Siesta Key Coloration Spray, Shimmering Ink in Majestic Minx and Kaleidoscope Stencil.

I die cut the tags on white card stock and placed the Kaleidoscope Stencil. Keeping the Siesta Key Coloration Spray at 6" inches away from the tag, I sprayed each tag differently; sprayed once for a light color, sprayed twice for a bit more color and lastly three times for a darker coloration. The photos don't do it justice, but oh boy that shimmer!

The Shimmering Ink in Majestic Minx has a dropper making it super easy to add splatters and that's exactly what I did. After the ink and mist dried, I stamped the sentiment and embellished each tag with bling.
Using Scrapbook Adhesives Ultra Strong tape runner I attached the tag onto the gold larger tags. I attached the Rita's A Merry Little Christmas ephemera with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares.

I then used Westcott Non-Stick scissors to cut the organza ribbon for smooth clean cuts.
The tags are super adorable! The A Merry Little Christmas has the cutest images! These are just 3 of the 5 images included in the collection.

Thank you for stopping by, your next stop is Michelle, you are going to LOVE her project!
Keep it crafty, keep it MERRY!
