Broken Angel

Here's a stunning stamp called Broken Angel by artist Merdith Dillman (Plate #107). I just love the beauty of this stamp. I wanted to give this stamp very rich coloring so I chose bright blues and dark yellows. I then matched those colors with cardstocks to create the card.The beautiful border surrounding the image is done with large size punches from Martha Stewart. I lined the center with shimmery silver paper and then added my Copic colored image along with my saying for the card. The saying comes from another Merdith Dillman sheet Plate #98.

It is very beautiful stamp. I love her sad eyes, and at the same time you can feel love from this image. I can look at her all day. And you coloured her so beautiflul.
