Angel wings...

Well it's time for the next Crafty Boots challenge - how quickly the fortnight goes! This time it was my turn to choose the theme and I chose Song Titles - you can make anything you like as long as you can fit a Song Title to it! My favourite Robiie Williams song is Eternity (because it reminds me of being 18!) but that was a little too challenging so I chose Angels instead. The children and I often 'sing' along to this song - I say sing but David thinks 'murder' might be more appropriate! Unfortunately I have been laid pretty low with a really horrible virus and my mojo has been somewhat absent so I hope you like my simple project. 
I typed out the lyrics and coloured them with Tumbled Glass Distress Stain, blotted it whilst it was still wet and brushed over an ad hoc watery wash of PaperArtsy Snowflake Paint and then adhered it to a piece of grey board. The wings are covered in Picket Fence Crackle Glaze with Vintage Photo Distress Ink rubbed over it when dry and then wiped off with a clean cloth. I then roughly clear embossed them and then rubbed Black Soot Distress Ink over the top as before and clear embossed again. 
I attached the wings to the board with two brads that I beat with my Texture Hammer and added two eyelets, ribbon and a dymo sentiment. Thank you for popping by and I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

I love the idea that you put the song words in the background. Great project. Sometimes less is more!
