Statue Hues

This is my tag for Hels Sunday Stamper challenge week 212 where the theme is to use SILVER.

It's strange how the mind works isn't it.  One look at Hels tag with the silver metal and yellows reminded me of a Design Seeds set of colours called Statue Hues - stone greys, moss green and yellow lichens etc.  That led to the Angels out of Dr Who - that scary episode where you were not allowed to blink, to keep your eye on the Angels otherwise you were a gonner, hence don't look back!!   Definitely a weird week.......but here it is!!

The background is Iced Spruce and Weathered Wood Distress Inks mixed with Picket Fence Distress Stain to get a stoney feel.  I've overstamped this with Tim Holtz Bitty Grunge set in Dark Moss and Bisque Clay chalk inks, plus a bit of Silver Brilliance and then edged it with Silver Dabber.

The photo of the angel was taken in the grounds of Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, the words were printed on the computer and the ribbon was coloured with stains and inks.

It's not my usual colour scheme but I hope you like.   Thanks so much for looking!
