Reading Cherub

Hi there! Here is a card that I made for Whiff of Joy Inspiration & Tutorial Blog the other day.

My tutorial was about how I made the old book page patterned paper that I used on my card. You can find the post here.

I used the newly released Reading Cherub for my card. He is colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Labels 18 die. I masked the little angel before stamping the script background from Essential Backgrounds - Text Style over him with Tea Dye distress ink. The piece is then inked with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo distress inks while the paper is still in the die.

Aside from the text paper that I made, I also tucked two pieces of patterned paper from London Market 6x6 Collage Paper Pack by Pink Paislee under the image. The sentiment is from General Sayings II set. All paper edges are inked with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo distress inks as well.

That's all for now. Please go and have a look of my tutorial here and check out May Release at Whiff of Joy Stamps!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
