Awfully Big Art Adventure - Dark Angel

Oh dear, Im sorry its taken me so long to complete this weeks challenge, Ive been extremely busy.
Well she's not the average Angel thats for sure, but she is my entry for this weeks challenge at ABBA

I was inspired by Linda B who made a beautiful peacock doll. Linda kindly sent me the instructions and my intention was to make my angel along similar lines, however once i started with the gold embossing powder etc i couldnt stop and before i knew it i was adding the purples.

Well I know shes maybe not what was expected but i love her.
I dont know if you can see but she has amethyst ear-rings. The tiny stones and german scrap i got from Scrapz I really enjoyed making the body, it was messy but fun. I started out with glue and tissue, then added glue and bondable film and embossing powders and mettalic paints and more embossing powders, until i was happy.

Thanks for looking at my Dark Angel
