Where angel kits begin

One of my next angel kits is Ariel "The Lion or Lioness of God" who is usually associated with nature and the environment (and fairies! She was a tree sprite in Shapespeare's The Tempest). I lose track of the outside world pretty easily and can require some oomph to leave my studio and actually see sunlight. Ariel helps this :)

With angel cards, I usually start a rough sketch with pen and marker and then see how it translates to card form. From there I make some adjustments - usually some kind of vine or flowery adornment is needed to work with the text. And voila! Helpful reminding oomph to get outside. I'll post a part 2 to show the final Ariel card.

Ha. That lion looks bewildered.
