a whiter shade of...

This card looks better in actuality, the shadow on the weeping angel is highlighted in the photo, but not so much on the card.

I also came across a new challenge blog, which looks interesting, so I thought I'd enter this months. All the other designs look so amazing!

white pearls
white gesso
I used CAP2 to resize and place my images, and also to lighten them using the transparency tool. Once I was happy with the size and placement, I printed the page out, cut down to fit a 6x6 card and then rummaged around in my die cut off-cut box, to see what I could find. Stuck them on and added a few pearls. The Gesso was a happy accident *cough* there was a mark on the paper below the Angel, so I had to think how to cover it up..... three applications of Gesso later, I think it worked.
