got Wings?

Thinking about angels protecting us.  Angels after as, point the way to God- who protects.  However, 'got wings' could mean so many different things to different people; such as encouraging someone to take flight.

To make this card, I first put down embossing paste with gold embossing powder and heat set it.  I purposely let some of the embossing overhang the edge for interest and a messy look (because life is).  Then I painted the whole paper with black acrylic paint.  Before it was dry I used a baby wipe to remove the paint on the gold embossing.  I then took three colours of distress ink and when into the background with them (candied apple, pine needles and salty ocean).  Then I took two background stamps with Hero Arts Unicorn White ink and inked up the background.  After this I splattered white paint on the background, smudging it here and there as well.  

I then cut out two wings with a background for each and the wings? sentiment with my Cameo.  I painted the wings? black and then added blue dollar store glitter with clear glue.  I painted the front piece of the wings yellow and blue and the back white and black (mixing the colours in places).  I sprinkled the backings of the wings with clear sparkly dollar store glitter and painted a coat of Stevenson Professional Acrylic in Iridescent Pearl over the yellow and blue wing fronts.  Lastly, I used my studio G alpha set and embossed the word 'got' on black paper, and then I assembled the card.  I add white string for detail and put foam squares on the backs of the wings and the black paper.
