Three Muses - Angels

The challenge for this week at The Three Muses is Angels. I always have to think hard for challenges with angels, because even after several years of rubber stamping, I still do not have any stamps with angels. Luckily, I do have the gorgeous paper of Graphic45, on which I found the two images with angels that appear on this tag. The background is coloured with Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed distress inks. The stamp in the background is from Tim Holtz.

The quote I found on some quote site. It is quoted in The Angels´ Little Instructions Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994. It seems like a good new year´s intention, try to get rid of all the burdens, and see how far we fly...

Het thema voor deze week bij The Three Muses is Angels. Ik stempel nu al een paar jaar, maar ik heb nog steeds geen stempels met engeltjes. Gelukkig heb ik wel het prachtige papier van Graphic45, waarop wel plaatjes met engelen staan. De achtergrond is gemaakt met Scattered Straw en Mustard Seed distress inkt. De stempel op de achtergrond is van Tim Holtz.

De quote heb ik op een van de vele quotes sites gevonden en komt uit The Angels' Little Instruction Book van Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994. Het lijkt me een goed voornemen, wat minder zorgen op de schouders laden, en dan zien hoever we ineens kunnen vliegen...

I love the addition of the stained glass on the side, Mark. Your tags are always special. The quote is a good one. Yes, we all could fly faster and higher if we cast aside our burdens! Half what we worry about never comes to pass anyway, and the other half we can't change. Thanks for sharing your talent!
