Wintry Angel Christmas

The challenge at Fussy and Fancy 

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge

is being hosted by our lovely and talented Jules and she has chosen the theme

Our sponsor is Lawn Fawn.

My fellow teamie and friend 'Dar'
and I recently purchased two pads of metallic paper pads
and split them between us.
The papers are beautiful and that is what I used for my
gorgeous die cut angel. 
The die is Tutti Designs Flying Angel
 While Dar was here visiting me in August,
she brought all her Tutti dies and I borrowed
this die at that time and here it is!
I just love it and it is on my list to purchase!

However, I first embossed a snowflake background,
then used the new Nuvo Pure Platinum Mousse to rub over
the entire embossed area.
I wish you see the shimmer in person, it is gorgeous!

I mounted that on a piece of metallic card stock.
Gold flowers and die cut leaves were also added.

I stamped a sentiment in Versamark,
then embossed in a gold EB powder.

Now here is where things get interesting.
I used the same 'Mouse' (Pure Platinum)
and rubbed (with my finger) over the embossed sentiment,
then took a dry baby wipe and 'polished' it pretty!
The sentiment was then die cut out.

So pop on over to the Fussy and Fancy blog
to all the Design Team has to inspire YOU!
