For my sample I used the new Alleluia Angel stamp. I stamped it on X-Press It Blending Card! with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut the image down to a 1 7/8″ square. It was colored with Copic Markers (Horn: YR21, YR23, E97, Skin: E50, E51, E53, Dress: Y32, Y35, Y38, E97, Hair: E25, E27, E29, Ribbon: R08, R27, R39, Wings: BV000, BV20, BV23). I added a 1 7/8″ square of patterned paper was adhered to the back of the image. It was then sandwiched between a 2″ square Frosted Memory Glass and a regular memory glass on the back and placed in a Memory frame.

I ran some silver cord through the hanger and a Philosophy tag that I adhered to the top right of the image. I topped it with gold organdy ribbon tied into a bow and hit with a heat gun to antique it.
