Christmas Music Angel

Just an experiment to see what this would look like. Ya know how you have a "picture" in your head, but you never know what it really looks like until you stamp it? This was pretty much what I had envisioned, except in my head I had a big bundle of ribbon tying the ornament on. In the actual stamping, I didn't want to cover up the angel, so I found a pretty hammered brad to attach the ornament.

The ornament was sprayed with Burnt Red Glimmer Mist, dried, and sponged with Walnut Stain distress ink. I wish you could see the shimmer.

All the stamps on here are from Cornish Heritage Farms. I just love the big Aged Sheet Music scrapblock. This allows me to use the image for either a horizontal card or a vertical card with none of the sheet music cut off. Awesome!
