Now for my project...I used the 4.5 inch version of our new DOTD Angel and made a 3D Angel to sit on the top of my black Halloween tree.
I stamped her twice onto Neenah solar white cardstock in Onxy Black Memento ink.  I fussy cut out one entire image and then just the following from the 2nd:  the flowers from the wings, the largest flower on her skirt, her skirt bustle, upper body and her halo.  I coloured everything with Copics and adhered red jewels to her bodice and bedazzled the fringe along the bottom edge of her gown.

To give her lots of yummy dimension I layered the fussy cut out pieces onto the main image with pop dots and also added even more dimension and sparkle with touches of Viva Pearl magic transparent white dimensional paint to the entire image.

To make the tree topper I cut a piece of acetate and formed a cone and manipulated the angel by curving the cardstock to fit the curve of the cone and adhered it in place with double sided sticky tape.  The finishing touch is her halo which I attached to a thin strip of acetate so it floats above her head.

I had a devil of a time trying to capture how prettily she glows in the dark but you can sort of see the effect in the photo below.
Thanks for stopping by to see my project!
Happy Stamping!
