A couple of weeks ago I went on a "glitter blitz" rounding up every single chipboard embellishment I could find in my scrapbook stash! My favorite were these angel wings & crowns from a grunge board set by Tim Holtz. An idea began to spark about something I could create for my girls for Mother's Day.
I used Tim Holtz distressed glitter, which I absolutely am in love with! The distressed glitter has both a glittery and a velvety finish. The angel wings are done in pumice stone, the crowns in either tarnished brass or antique linen. I keep shopping for more distressed glitter :-)
While I was a glittering the wings and the crowns I started thinking about Mother's Day, angels and queens. I searched online for quotes that could include both queens and angels but couldn't find what was in my heart, so I began to jot down ideas as they came to my mind. I sent them to my girls to see what they thought and they each picked a favorite quote.
On with the project...
Hubby was recruited to paint my canvas boards a metallic antique gold. I then used Stays On metallic silver ink and my favorite large scroll stamp to create a more interesting background.
