Playing with paint and paper

The drama teacher at school, had to leave very suddenly due to ill health quite a few weeks ago. On Monday we are having a retirement do for her, we have had a collection and all signed a huge card. I decided today that I wanted to make her a retirement angel to wish her well. I have used text from Midsummer- Night's Dream' on the dress and I have stamped and painted the face, it took me several attempts to get the face right, wings made from vellum.
On Monday I have to email the Round Robin gang to let them know where they have to send their fabric too for the next step of the Challenge.
