This one is called Birgitta Rings a Bell and she's just so pretty!
I used the new Angel Background stamp again too with something I'd had in my crafting stash for so long I'd pretty much forgotten it existed and what I'd bought it for :)
Interference Gold Pearl-Ex !
I used veramark to stamp with and then sprinkled the Pearl-Ex on top. I then sprayed it with hairspray to seal it. I had used that technique before, but it was so, so long ago! What I hadn't done before was to make a kind of paint with it and Gum Arabic. I used that to paint the bell and the stars on her halo and the wings and on the "Merry Christmas" too.
In one light the card looks as it does in the first photo and then if you just tilt the card slightly, the gold really shines brightly. It really is beautiful! I tried to capture it in the photos, I haven't quite, but it is such an interesting effect.
