I started by covering the plaque with book pages and then threw on some green and blues coloring with an assortment of paints, inks and dyes. The flowers are buttons that I cut the back off of and glued to some green jute stems. I hesitated on writing the saying by hand because I always seem to mess up and although I won't point it out I did mess up a couple times here. Not to mention the word simple isn't even straight.
To make the angel I started by drawing her on paper then I used that as a template to cut out the various pieces from cardstock. The dress and face had fabric glued to the card and then for the face I added inks to the edges a little blush for the cheeks and used a marker to draw her simple eyes and smile. Her hair is made from embroidery floss.
For the wings I covered the cardstock with foil then ran it through my cuddlebug to get the embossed design. Then I painted, dabbed some paint off and added some distress inks for added color. I glued all the pieces together then glued her on to the plaque. Her halo is currently removeable because I have yet to decide if I like it or not.
