Gems gems gems

I wanted to try colouring with distress inks after seeing some tutorials on you-tube....

....So I got out my stamps from Pink Gem.
This was my first try at it and i can see where i need to improve but i found it easier than i was expecting.
I stamped the image of  Angel Chloe in black archival onto water colour paper.
The halos are coloured with inktense pencils and everything else is distress inks.
The wings have distress stickles and the halos have gold stickles. 

I added some small gems to the sky which was also made with distress inks.
And finally added some gold ribbon and twine.
As the challenge over at A gem of a challenge is Gems Gems Gems i am  entering this card :)
Thanks for looking.
