Here's the finished ATC and if you want to see how I did the background, I've scanned it every step of the way and posted the pictures below. I received the image of David Borneanaz in an email from the very talented Linda Baldock and he looked so hot in the picture I just had to use him in my "Angel" themed card ... considering he was also the vampire "Angelus / Angel" in the television series a few years ago.
Step 4: Add a little watered down black paint in some areas and rub off quickly with paper towel.
Step 5: I added a little Making Memories Ruby Glaze Paint over the black to tone it down a little.
Step 6: I've used a Tim Holtz splatter stamp with clear ink and embossed with red powder because my Angel is really a vampire and I wanted it to look like blood in the background. The embossing is actually not part of the Peeled Paper technique, but I added it because I like texture.
Step 7: I've inked around the edges in StazOn Timber Brown Ink and painted the German Scrap Swan wings that started off white with similar paint colours as the background, red and copper. I then used black rub 'n' buff and some gold rub 'n' buff on top to tone the black down a little.
In the final stage I added the words "Angel of the night" which I'd painted in the ruby glaze paint and inked around in the StazOn Timber Brown. You can still see some of the words from the original text through the paint, although it's difficult to see in the scan, but if you want to see more, just water down the paints and dab more off before it dries.
"Angels are messengers, but sometimes we misunderstand their language."
