Winter Wishes (The Stampers’ Sampler)

This post features a trio of snowflake angels which appear in the Autumn issue of The Stampers’ Sampler – squeezing them in here, before the end of the year, really should have shared them before now!
This is quite photo heavy but will be short on words…that’s a first!
The trio gathered together – each doll approx 4.5″ x 8″
triocclynnemsampler2016Other than the little labels with a festive sentiment, all stamps are Character Constructions and available HERE. Catherine Moore ships to the U.K. otherwise I think it is almost impossible to source them here.
Each angel consists of many stamps, so they are not quick makes but once you give yourself over to them, they are such fun to stamp, assemble and then adorn.  For all the paper dolls, I painted papers/cardstock.angelonecclynnem2016She has such a wonderfully sweet face.angeloneonecclynnem2016ICE Resin brings a wonderful dimension to the wings, with the merest hint of glitter.

January 1st is looming upon us but I will try and share at least one more blog post before the end of the year comes calling.

    They are beautiful, Lynne! Such ethereal appearances. Character Constructions stamps are such fun to play with. I can see that you had a wonderful time creating these angels. The gorgeous laces and tiulle on the crinoline is such a nice touch. The ice resin on the wings really draws the eye. I love all the various snowflakes you have incorporated into the trio. The individual wands and head pieces gives them each a personality all their own. I’m so glad I have the magazine to look closer at your superior work. (Another publication well deserved :). Cheers!

      Sharon, I gave myself over to adding detail upon detail. They are time consuming paper dolls to create but the most fun – even getting messy with the ICE Resin!
      Thank you always for your support.
