You then have to make the neck for the angel, make this small only a 1.5 finger bubble maximum.
Then make a 2 finger space bubble that you twist into the neck of the angel as per picture.

You then make another 2 finger bubble and twist this back into the pinch twist.
Make another 7 finger bubble for the back of the head and twist
this back into the two pinch twists at the top of the head.

I then make the centre bubble slightly smaller,
a 6 finger bubble so the 7 finger bubbles have a little rounded look.
The 6 finger bubble twists into the lower pinch twist by the neck.

(if you have made the head a little bigger than mine then you can use the rest
of the yellow 160 and make another 6 finger bubble back up to the top pinch twists
so you have two central bubbles and two outer bubbles at the back of the head.)

On the wand I'm making the back of the head had three bubbles up and down.
I then twisted a 1 finger bubble to connect the head to the pinch twist of the wings later.
As the design is top heavy there are two connection points for the head to body and wings.
The pinch twist for the neck twists into the pinch twist separating the arms and then the
yellow 160 bubble is twisted into the pinch twist for the wings.


If you have made the head the same size as I have then 3 bubbles at the back are OK.
If you used two strokes of the green pump then the head will be a little bigger so you can
at this point run the yellow 160 with a 6 finger bubble back to the top pinch twists.
Making four bubbles running up and down the back of the head.
Then discard the rest of the yellow 160,
the 1 finger bubble can be added later with the other 160 yellow balloon.

Inflate the second 160 yellow, gold in the packets supplied and leave 5/6 fingers un-inflated.
Attach to the bottom yellow pinch twist.

All the instructions will need to be slightly larger if you have used a bigger head proportion.

Make a 7 finger bubble and then two 2 finger pinch twists.

Followed by a 3 finger pinch twist,

you then need a 1 finger space bubble that you twist into the two pinch twists that hold the angels halo in place.

Then twist a second 1 finger spacer bubble back to the three pinch twists.

Then a 7 finger bubble back to the back yellow pinch twist at the bottom of the head.

Make sure the three pinch twists sit central on top of the head.

You now have to fill in the hair at the side with a 6 finger bubble,
this is twisted around the three front pinch twists.

Make another 6 finger bubble for the other side of the face
and twist this into the yellow pinch twist at the back of the head.

If you need to make the 1 finger bubble to attach the hair to the pinch twist of the wings
make that now and discard the rest of the 160.

Make a pinch twist in the blush quick link ready to attach the head.

Now you have to twist the blush neck pinch twist around the front white pinch twist.

Then attach the 1 finger bubble around the pinch twist for the wings making
two connection points for the head to body design.

Adjust and cut off excess balloons.

Add artwork.

Hope the instructions read OK, this one was quite difficult to explain.
Partly due to me getting muddled up and forgetting to take pictures
at crucial times and having to re-do the design and taking extra pictures,
still I think we got there in the end.

The competition for Dec closes on the 7th Jan with the winner randomly selected on the 8th Jan.
We only have one entry at the moment so there is a good chance of winning this month.
