Well it's no surprise that Earth Angel is my favorite set! So to add an element of surprise, I decided to choose my favorite newer set to pair with it...and that is definitely My Heart! You know when you get asked on forums questions such as "What 5 crafting items would you bring with you to a deserted island?" Well these two sets would make it into my survival backpack :)
I stamped 2 hearts from My Heart onto patterned paper from Crate Paper's "Storybook" Collection. Paper-pieced the dress for the little angel in the same pattern. The sentiment is from Earth Angel, as well. I decided to stamp the "Angels" portion over the mini heart from My Heart, and then cut it out.
I stamped her wings in light blue ink and then traced around the image with a glue pen and added crystal glitter. I love the look, as I usually stamp them separately and cut them out. She is holding a teeny little garland of mini buttons that I strung together with regular thread.
So there you have it! My old AND new favorites from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I can't wait to see what everyone else has chosen. Off you go to Laurie's blog.
