A BIT WEIRD MAYBE ...

When I've knocked off another chapter I treat myself to some arty time, and this ATC is the latest result. I know it's a bit weird but I was sort of thinking a lot about angels ... there's one in my book. What I was after was something much stronger and more dramatic looking than the usual pallid or cute angels, and this image made me think of an opera diva so I gave her wings. Of course she isn't really an angel - they aren't female - so that's why I added the message about pretending. The border is done with a new set of stamps I was playing with, and I've added gold bits here and there too. I could list all the sources etc and who made the stamps, but you know I really can't be bothered! I'm in that sort of mood today ......

PS For all of you who seem a bit disappointed that angels aren't girls ... can I point out that only four angels are named in the bible Gabriel, Michael, Raphael and Uriel!! I rest my case!

I feel like she's a strong angel. Doesn't look weird at all! Very nice work.
