A Hangy Thingy!

I can post these now as the recipient (my friend Burnice) has received it now! I started this a little while ago for her birthday on Jan 11th but needed vellum for the wings whilst we were snow-bound. So I put it to one side until I could get out and it has taken me until this week to finish it. Sorry for the delay Hun!
It started life as a ply wood shape that I painted with gesso and then blue acrylic paint. I did it quite thick as I like the different shades it goes and it gives a bit of subtle texture too. Not sure where I found the quote but I printed it out and just coloured it with pastels. Burn is into all things "angel" so I thought it was rather suitable. The image was from t'internet and I stamped the wings on vellum with Brilliance ink.
Before I assembled it I stamped silver stars onto the BG and added some gems to the larger ones....they don't really show up in the pic tho. Then I just put it all together and added some wire and beads to hang it.
Sorry it was so late Burn but I hope you liked it!
