Vintage Christmas Angel

This card was intended to be entered in to last weeks Winter wonderland challenge - Very Vintage. But once I'd done the main image just couldn't decided what to do with it, so onto the shelf it went. Then today I got it down and had another look at it, and this is what I came up with...

The main image is a painting by Edward Burne-Jones (1878) called 'An Angel Playing Flageolet', I think it's rather beautiful. I made the frame for it from gold hessian paper and a Cuttlebug border embossing folder, then edged with gold peel offs. The backing paper is from alteredbits.com. The edges were stamped with Inkadinkado Snow flourish stamp using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. The inside of the snowflakes was then painted with Shimmerz Candle Light paint and darker areas with Shimmerz Choc-o-lot paint. The centers of the snow flakes has a blob of Tim Holtz Distress Stickles - Frayed Burlap. The flowers are Flora Doodles white wild roses. The edges of the roses were stained with Tim Holtz Distress ink - Antique Linen, and then gone over again with Shimmerz Candle Light paint. The stamens of the flowers were painted with Smooch gold paint.There another Christmas card done, only another million to go !!!!!! :o/
Take care & keep smiling
