Today’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge Hostess is Maki.  She is challenges us to use the same imageto make two cards/projects with two totally different look, style theme or colors.

For my samples I chose the Alleluia Angel.  For my card, I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die, colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E0000, E00, E01, E31   Dress: R35, R37, R39   Hair: Y21, Y23, E33   Trumpet and Ribbon: YR21, YR23, YR24) and sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress ink. The image was first stitched to a slightly bigger black cardstock circle, then adhered to a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest of the new Picot Edge Circle Nestabilities dies.

A piece of Crochet Lace was adhered to a 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of 25 Days of Christmas paper. The bottom corners of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of paper from the same paper pack were rounded, the edges of the paper were sponged with Vintage Photo ink and paper/lace strip were adhered to the layer. The edges of the layers were stitched and Ivory Organdy Ribbon was tied around the vertical strip.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft paper folded in half. Again the bottom corners were rounded and the edges were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress ink.  The layers were adhered ot the card base and dressed up with part of a Finesse Pearl Swirl. A sentiment from the set was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The oval was sponged with Vintage Photo ink before it was adhered t o a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag Die. The sentiment was adhered underneath the angel layers.

My second project I kept really simple. I used the angel to decorate small tags.

The tags were cut with Tim’s Tiny Tabs & Tag die.The tags were sponged with Vintage Photo ink and the angel and sentiment were stamped in second generation of that ink. The To and From stamps are from A Gift For You.  They were stamped in Jet Black Archival ink. A button was threaded with thin May Arts ribbon and adhered over the tag hole. Another tag was adhered to the back to keep the ribbon and button in place.
